Brambling - my garden, Eccleston

This gorgeous male brambling visited the garden this afternoon. I was just on the way out to collect my car from a service so only had a few minutes to watch it, and it was gone by the time I'd got back.

I've had bramblings in the garden a few years ago when a male and female visited intermittently for  a week or so, but this was a complete surprise today.
