An uncommon guest
All youthful exuberance
This gorgeous little creature is a new visitor to the garden. I think he…or she…is a youngster and was intent on checking out the pool in his new home, disappearing into the shallows for a bath without so much as a by-your-leave.
He…or she… might be a siskin…or a greenfinch… or something else entirely…and I’d love to know for sure. I don’t think he has his full colours yet. Just enough to show how beautiful the plumage will be…
he spent a lot of time hovering over the water, as if seeing it for the firsttime and unsure of what he should do with it. If anyone knows for sure what he is, we’d love to know.
