Lesser Redpoll by Lee O'Dwyer
Photographing passerines in flight is rarely a straightforward task, so this fabulous image of a Lesser Redpoll coming in to land, taken by Lee O'Dwyer, really caught the eye.
What's more, Lee has made the most of a rare sunny spell in recent weeks! The golden light of late afternoon really complements the finch's plumage, while a shutter speed of 1/3200th second has frozen the action and made for a classy, sharp shot.
Congratulations to Lee on his winning image, already our seventh of 2020.
