Because of the quick response I got with my first ever posting I thought I would try my luck with a second one. Here is another bird that has been sitting in my unidentified folder for a while - taken about a month ago in Shropshire in an area of mixed woodland (deciduous and conifers) but in an open area at the top of a hill. At first I thought Redpoll but none of my books seem to show that reddish back with black and white on the wing. I realise the images are poor - I am struggling with a soft 300mm lens (plus I was out of breath after climbing the hill!!).
Once again many thanks to anyone who can help.
