Little Visitor

A few days ago we were surprised and delighted to see a small bird land outside the cottage.  Poor thing appeared to be exhausted and certainly wasn’t shy of humans!  He/She even managed to peck some water droplets from Doug’s fingers.

We think it may have belong to the bullfinch family?  Can anyone help us identify the little fella.  Super colourful and was unfazed by all the attention.  It stayed for a couple of hours and then flew away.
