Our Brambling!

I've never had so many attempts at photographing a visiting bird as this! Every time I moved the camera up to my eye it would fly off, that is until I finally caught it unawares!
He had been visiting the garden for at least an hour before I managed to get these

From left to right goldfinch, brambling, great tit and another goldfinch


 While I was waiting I took a few more pics of some of today's garden visitors

oh look the siskins have stayed around!

tree sparrow and blue tit

collared dove

and just for comparison this is a chaffinch!
