    1. It's a young greenfinch, Janet. I was a bit worried when it was looking in the pond.

  2. Awww, how cute. I've had lots of juvenile greenfinches in my garden this year, the adults are regular visitors, they adore the black sunflower seeds.

  4. Sue, have you ever seen a fledgling Wood Pigeon? I never have, although we get lots of pigeons visiting the garden, and I think we have even had them nesting in a neighbours tree. Maybe they leave the nest at a much more advanced stage than other birds?

    1. I haven't Mark. I know they patents feed them on pigeon milk that is very nutritious. Maybe once weaned they are more independent or maybe their plumage means we don' notice the diffference.

  6. What a pretty bird. I haven't seen greenfinch here. But goldfinch loves to sit in front of my window and sing. Annoying little bird. :)

    2. I really hope so, we didn't have any in last year but have had three broods in this year so far which has to be a good sign.....and I have a fair few in my garden, it's a good job they are so long lived, at least they can have plenty of offspring.xxx

  11. So cute. We have so many visitor on my garden, a week ago I found a baby finch under the arch that full of passion fruit vine. I guess the baby was fallen from its nest on the oasdion fruit vine. Hope your will grow happily there.

  13. Lovely photos Sue they seem unafraid of humans at that stage not quite sure what to do with themselves - I wonder at what stage in their lives where they become wary of us.

    1. At this stage they are definitely at their most vulnerable, Elaine, Mum was still feeding so I didn't get too close and relied on the zoom
