More Citril Finches

Last day of our holiday today before the long, over-land journey home across France. Following success earlier in the week with Citril Finch and Nutcracker, I returned to Cret de Chatillon in the hope of improving on my initial photographs.

No Nutcracker this time unfortunately but the Finches were still present in a mixed flock with Goldfinch and Siskin. The sun was behind me this time, and while the Finches were quite approachable when feeding in the long grass this made them quite difficult to photograph. Add in some heat haze and the challenge was increased. Charming birds though, especially when vocalising.

A few more of the ubiquotous Black Redstart and Crested Tit rounded off an enjoyable final morning in the French Alps.
