If anyone from work could of seen me it would of been a strange sight (warn you now fellow work colleagues, if you see me stalking the car park its for a reason!!), with myself hanging out of the car window and camera pointed to the trees I fired of a fair few shots. Looking on the rear screen I noticed it was going to be nigh impossible to ID due to the low light but could make out a forked tail. Easy you might think but no, you see the majority of finches have forked tails Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Bullfinch, aswell as hell of alot of other birds of this size, so I conceded defeat and headed off home. I was hoping they were Twite as cannot remember the last time I had seen one but realised that it could of also been Linnet's, so now you understand the title of this post.
