Bird on a Fence / by Conor Cunningham

I've spotted a bird I've not seen before, a common chaffinch (bokfink) in fact, in the backyard. Apparently it is as common as they come, but I've read that they migrate to Southern Europe for the winter. Not entirely sure if this one was just lazy, or the mild winter has invited it back.

Not much to write regarding the photography. Camera was in manual, bumped up the ISO to 800, lense at 200mm with IS on, f/2.8 and 1/80th of a second (it is dark outside, haven't seen the sun for many, many weeks).

I've decided I like this bird. Hope to see more of them!
