One eyed lesser redpoll - lifer. It's not a lifer cos it's only got one eye but because I've never captured a redpoll before. I think that it has a tick just to the left below the beak. It seemed healthy enough.
Still have houseguests. Got some browsing done after work today while they were all out shopping, but didn't quite get caught up. Taking off myself tomorrow at 4am, so have to get to bed now. Maybe I can catch up at the airport tomorrow evening between flights. Meanwhile, here are the last three...
Shame the light was so tricky that afternoon, as it meant I had to open the lens wide to get any sort of shutter speed (without massive ISO levels).
Still, seems to work as an image, and was pleased to catch up with some at last this winter.
Think I can say with reliability that this is a Lesser Redpoll from info from Terryerye. One from my visit with Tom to Terry NWs Garden.
Early post today as got to take advantage of this glorious Sunshine.
