Great pictures Basil did you take them yourself

Once again excellent pics Basil. Nearly all the chaffinches round here have "bumble foot" even saw a bullfinch with it recently. Poor little sod couldn't perch on the feeder. They say it doesn't hurt but it certainly incapacitates them.
They certainly have some character Dom.
I`ve been trying to photograph one hovering before a feeder ... still trying!
We had a hornet's nest in the garage last year where they were exiting and entering through a knot hole. I must have taken a couple of hundred photos of them as they hovered just outside before going in, and I still didn't really end up with one that I was totally happy with.
The photos I've taken of birds hovering over the coconut shell before landing haven't worked terribly well either.
Another of life's insurmountable opportunities
O wad some Power the giftie gie us to see oursels as ithers see us!
