IS THIS A LINNET ??????????


Sorry for the poor photos,i was at the limit of my lens. I have looked through my "Eye Spy" book of birds and the nearest to my poor photos is a Linnet. Maybe someone can confirm this please.

What a great sight to see this train going a high speed on the main line today. It came from London going to Cardiff and stopped in our little town of Lydney. The train is as old as me and in far better condition. It took me back to when i was a little boy,those were the days, NOW IM STARTING TO SOUND LIKE MY LATE FATHER!!!!!.
