A New Visitor to the Fort Copse Settlement

Trouble with the Internet connection yesterday.

The first of the winter arrivals came yesterday and it was indeed a surprise to me. Not only was this a Fort Copse first but it was until very recently a life tick for me.
The bird landed on the Nyger lookout just above the Mousetrap Farm. At first I thought it was the same as the others in the small flock...but after close scrutiny through the bins I was happy to see my first Brambling close up.
Unlike the Chaffinches ...the Brambling only fed on the Nyger seed feeder.
Today the flock returned and I think a female was also with them.
