Not-So-Common Rosefinch in London
Didn't expect to see this in London in July! A superb male summer-plumaged Common Rosefinch at Walthamstow Marshes. Singing on and off from early morning, it favoured the aerials above the Anchor and Hope pub, which unfortunately wasn't open for a celebratory drink at 6.30am. Usual view...
Slightly better view...
That's better....it briefly flew over the river to feed with sparrows just behind us, where I managed to snatch a couple of shots through the reeds.
