Hawfinch (Coccothraustes coccothraustes)

Out in the garden on our first evening in Norway, just having a look around the property. I heard a sound coming from the top of the row of tall trees at the rear of the house, that was unfamiliar to me. Had a look through me bins, and there sat this little fella munching away. Not as colourful as I expected a Hawfinch to be, but a delight to see all the same.
