Bull finches

Photographing a wedding at the weekend. Looked out the window at the brides house to see 2 Bullfinches in the garden. The bride nor the make up artist were impressed no matter how many times I told them how rare they were. Still I got a kick out of it. Hadn't seen any in years.

Yeah, Bullfinch, isn't the most romantic sounding bird to provoke everlasting memories of her happiest day!!
Could have been worse I suppose.

(I once saw a Black Redstart from the office window, and tried to impress on a colleague, who supported Ipswich Town, that Black Redstarts were as unusual as Ipswich winning the cup.. That didn't go down too well either!)
