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.
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
