Bird Observations Day to Day.

A winters day


Just a very short entry today, we were supposed to be going away for the day today but the weather was just too dull and what we hoped to see today lives very high in the trees so we do need good light  will try again another day.  We did go out for a walk and we greatly rewarded with a small flock of 8 lovely Bullfinches. This is very unusual for us we normally just get one or two at a time.  Last winter we had Bullfinch but only 2 about 200yds from where we saw them today, strange!  For the rest of the walk I'm afraid our heads we down against the wind so that was it for today.  Hope to get out later in the week.  Love

  4. Hello Joan

    I think this must be a male Bullfinch because of its beautiful colouring.What a shame about the windy weather, its been nice here in Norwich today very cold but nice and bright. I look forward to hearing about your next trip later on in the week.........
