Up close!

I have been making the most of this glorious weather, by doing a bit of tidying up in our back yard! As usual though I was easily distracted, this time it was a cheeky coal tit that was watching me from the hedge, so there I was watching it for a good few minutes thinking if I go inside for my camera it will fly away, so I eventually turned away from it to see on the ground right next to my feet as in centimetres away a tiny goldfinch, I guess it had flown into a window and was slightly stunned as it made no effort to fly away, just hopped around pecking at the seeds under the feeders. When I realised it wasn't going anywhere I decided to get my camera, I was so pleased that it stayed long enough for me to get these photo's before it finally flew off.

I then decided to hang around to see if my cheeky coal tit would make another appearance, it didn't disappoint.
