I was lately seeking to take a picture of a Bullfinch and finally I got it!

I think there were probably two individuals, a male and a female, because on Wednesday at dusk I saw the couple. But today I could only see the male. Beautiful indeed!

It's a quiet, inconspicuous bird  despite its bright colours. If disturbed, it moves out of sight through a thicket or hedge. It uses its round bill to feed on soft buds, flowers, and shoots rather than hard seeds.
