Nature's Finest - the Bullfinch

I have only ever seen the beautiful male bullfinch in his splendid salmon pink waistcoat only once. I was completely mesmerized by his dashing colours and knew instantly that he was the next bird I would create in wire. Unfortunately, I can't get a Bullfinch salmon pink wire so my creation has to be proper pink instead! It gives a general impression though, I hope!

They are uncommon visitors to gardens, with a preference for rural gardens close to woodland or scrub. I hope to see one eventually!
