"Monastic Goldfinch"

After a look round Waverley Abbey, a walk back to the car takes one along the side of some lily ponds and this little character was having a fine time picking at all the plants along the waters edge. Every time I got near it would chirrup away as it flew further along and I reckon this spot was just too good to pass by so I was able to get a shot of it.

Although the goldfinch is quite small in the frame its distinctive plumage has been recorded very well.
