It's not a great photo, but it's the best a compact can do 10 metres from a small bird. This is a Brambling, and it's the first one I've seen in our garden (in fact the first one I've seen ever, I think) so quite an exciting moment when we realised there was something new on the feeders and we rushed to identify it!

At first glance it could be mistaken for a Chaffinch, having the same basic pattern, colours and size, but the orange is so very much brighter and extends into the shoulder, the head a mottled grey all over and the beak yellow (though that's not the case in breeding males apparently). The overall effect is much brighter and more exotic than a Chaffinch. I waited a while with a bigger camera but we haven't seen it again yet.
