    I agree its a greenfinch. I used to have a lot of them in my garden but there was a disease a few years ago that wiped a lot of them out. I still see the odd one now and then but its rare these days :sad:

    I've heard a lot of greenfinches this year - they wheeze a lot - so hopefully that means the population is starting to recover.

    Maybe you are too far north for the virus (or whatever it was) to have reached there? Anyway I hope they do recover because I liked to see them.

    It looks a lot nicer than the grey one that's been around here today! Last time it was here I went out one morning to feed the birds and all the feeders were laying on the ground. He must have been in peanut heaven for a few days after that!

    Found this desiccated individual whilst fixing vine eyes for a grape vine to a Victorian vicarage in Bath. Rhinoceros beetle or dinosaur?

    Marsh harrier spotted on way out of Calais Sunday evening, hovering low over the grain field, fabulous sight whilst listening in to 5 live & Lowry win the open.

    That's interesting, didn't know that. We used to have a lot in our garden in North London but haven't seen them for a few years. That would probably explain why. They were good to see but did bully the other birds off the feeder!
