Yes Ron it is a very nice shot.

Yes a male Chaffinch, slate blue crown and neck, white wing-bar and shoulder patch. The female is less colourful.
The Bullfinch has a black cap and pinkish-red underparts.
But lets take nothing away from Ron, it's a cracking shot.

does it really matter if he thought it was a different bird to what it was, no need to call him a cock. Nice photo
