Thought it was a bullfinch, but not so sure. Anyway taken in a hide at The Lost Gardens of Helligan in Cornwall (we found them ) a couple of years ago. they had mirrored glass set with seed feeders right outside and cameras set on various nest sites.
It's a beautiful Goldfinch!....if you want to attract them to your garden get a feeder and some nyjer seed...that's what we did and we get lots....they are lovely visitors to have in the garden. http://donnaapsey.zenfolio.com
Thanks Donna, I am not good at identifying birds. (I try usually by looking on the web and in the various books we have). Would have liked to get better shots of this one but it was a brief visit. We have had greenfinches here but I have only seen them once. It is nice to go 'birding' to find the ones we dont't see in our gardens.John
