Mike said: "The Siskin was taken on a miserable wet Autumn day from my garden shed which I have modified for use as a hide.
It was shot using my favourite lens, an elderly Canon EF 500mm f4 IS and Canon EOS 1DX mk 2. I thought that the falling rain helped to create the atmosphere in the picture.

"Who needs to travel?"
