Male Serin

This is a new first for me, I have never photographed a Serin before. I was awake before sunrise this morning and the forecast was a for a great day, so decided to get my camo kit on and hide in the garden near a dead Oak Tree which has frequent visitors. I missed out on an Iberian Green Woodpecker that landed behind a branch and didn’t stay long enough, but soon after this Male Serin landed and started to sing it’s head off.

When it first landed, from behind the camo net I couldn’t work out if it was a Serin or a Siskin. As I’ve never photographed a Serin before, I was really hoping for one. Then I noticed the lack of a black cap that the Male Siskin has and therefore knew it was a Serin.
