Oscar Dewhurst – Chaffinch


Oscar writes: this Chaffinch was singing from the top of the gorse bushes in the car park at Minsmere. I was able to find a spot to photograph it from with a tree behind it, giving a nice clean green background.

Mark writes: it’s not April but this image did bring to mind
O, TO be in England
Now that April ‘s there,
And whoever wakes in England
Sees, some morning, unaware,
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
In England—now!
