Cheers, not one I see at home at all.
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
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.
Excited to see this little fellow this morning in the garden
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!
just round the corner from my house . Glasgow/ Summerston
See a lot of deer , but they usually vanish before I can get my phone out.
2 weeks riding in the early morning on quite Cornish lanes saw me spot 1 muncjac deer ,2 foxes ,1badger ,1 stoat or weasal ,a dozen or so buzzards amazingly common down there a grass snake and a hedgehog ,I can't remember the last time I saw a live hedgehog. Also came across a slow work while out walking .
Red Kite on my ride yesterday
Spotted this big damselfly and had to wait for ages for it to settle so I could get a picture .
Found this desiccated individual whilst fixing vine eyes for a grape vine to a Victorian vicarage in Bath. Rhinoceros beetle or dinosaur?
Ducks walking on water
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!
