Lovely pics as usual Pete; like the detail. The Dunnock is particularly colourful and the Chaffinch very handsome :)

got a problem with two male chaffinches, they both keep flying into my windows scared they will hurt themselves. Any ideas how to stop them, Penny the cat is being driven crazy "so near but so far away" she said. Jan cornwall
