Bullfinch two

The Bullfinch are not coming to the berries as often as I would like. In a 4 hour session today I had only 4 visits and the female no longer hovers, just perches. There only appears to be a single male visiting and although he hovers he usually has his back to me. Only once did he hover to the side of the berries, but the picture is not sharp enough.

I have always said with action photography like this you need repeated behaviour. One second of hovering once a hour on average is not enough. I need more opportunity.

I was happy with the best shot of the female as she pulled up a sprig of 3 berries and for once you could clearly see the eye.

Bullfinch F0323

The male in flight is not as sharp as I would like. I have had to sharpen it a long way and run Neat Image on it to reduce the noise.
