    1. So far two are visiting the sunflower heart feeders, Sarah. I wonder whether we will get bavk to hosting a flock.

    1. I think you have a bird with the same name - goldfinch - but it looks very different, Sue. The Victorians kept them as pets. I much prefer to see them flying wild.

    1. I've been trying to decide whether it is a Thomas or Thomasina, Deborah. Apparently even experts find differentiating a he from she to be tricky and some differences can only be observed by capturing them. If the red wasn't as bright I think I would lean towards a she.

  6. They are always very cautious coming down to the feeders, just like the one in your photo, hopping down through the trees and bushes.

    1. Quite rightly so, Brian as we do have a visiting sparrowhawk.
