Lovely series as usual Kevin, the Green and Gold finches are particularly nice, plenty of feather detail, and that all important eye contact.


Best regards Paul

Beautiful Kevin.. I always like examining the fine details.. For example, are the feathers on the face on the Goldfinch always so coarse? or is it in a molt stage or something similar?

Amazing series. I liked the small bird pics the best. The detail and lighting are great. Great job.

A very nice selection Kevin - all worthy of K... but that Dunnock is absolutely superb.

Always a soft spot for your goldfinches for me. Also very fond of the Ruff and
Godwit shot, has a great look with its muted colors.

Thanks Bill, it's down to moulting as they are usually very spick and span

Thanks Robert, amazing how much is lost with the others due to cropping
