Finally I can at least move my arm a bit in the sling, so out to the back yard with the camera. What does that doctor know about things anyway and there are no birds in my house, I know I have looked everywhere.

Very cute bird, Tom. I've seen them over here and on Iceland where they seem to be quite common. Redpoll is the name in English, I suppose? Is it a flammea or hornemanni?

The name here is Snösiska or Gråsiska. Something like "Snow Finch or Grey Finch"

Yes it is a Arctic Redpoll and a female, as the males have red on their breast!

Interesting how we have similar birds in Scandinavia and North America.
