There should be a photo of a Goldfinch here. Only by the time I got my camera out, they had buzzed off. My fault for topping up the feeders and then counting them for an hour, by which time they were stuffed to the gills and had gone to burp in a tree somewhere. As I had counted 19 earlier, this was a severe avian V-sign! Just spotted one out there, so here it is:
So, my RSPB Great Garden Birdcount got the following results:
It is Goldfinch and Siskin central (not that the RSPB were counting Siskins):
Sparrows (House) 3
Blue Tits 7
Great Tits 6
Coal Tit 1
Willor or Marsh Tit 2
No sign of the Greater Spotted Woodpecker who regularly visits, or the Jay (ditto) or the pair of Nuthatches on the Damson Tree feeders - they arrived after the count, having visited singly before that.
One of the Damson Tree Nuthatches.
Well, this won't do. I must get on with some housework - there is a house viewing next Sunday . . .
