After filling up the feeders in my garden this afternoon, the birds soon appeared. A mixed finch flock of around 10 Goldfinch, 10 Greenfinch and 5 Chaffinch hung around the feeders on the fence. Whilst watching the flock I noticed a stunning male Brambling amongst them, which didn’t stay long.
The resident Robin who has sung constantly each night from 1am since the 20th December chased away anything that got to close. Numbers of Collard Dove, Wood Pigeon, Coal, Blue and Great Tit and Blackbird doubled as they pillaged the feeders. Jackdaw and a Song thrush were also briefly present as was a male Bullfinch.
