A bird that was in good supply at Spurn was the Linnet. There were several large flocks around and it was good to get quite close to a few of them. They are a very flighty bird, and usually when they see you coming they are off and far into the distance. The males are stunning looking birds, and for me underrated. Quite often their name is preceded by "Oh it's just a". Not for me though. Fascinating birds to watch.
The rather dull looking female, but actually a nice looking bird.

Nice shots. I used to enjoy seeing them in Scotland. It's one of the few British birds I managed to get a photograph of.ReplyDelete
