A Very Shy Bullfinch


Not a great pic, but neglected corners can reveal nice surprises. He's been lurking in this weedy area for a day or two, hopefully with a nearby nest. Bullfinches have, I believe, adapted to feeders in some areas, but this is only the second time I have observed one. The first occasion was some ago.

Lovely photo.  Used to have these pretty birds on my feeder at the top of my garden, which has a copse/wood at the bottom.  However, for some reason I haven’t seen any locally now for a few years ??

Rather better picture than I have managed out of my study window in Nelson, Lancashire. I have a pair of bonny, bulky Bullfinch visiting my sunflower and seed feeders about 15 feet from the window. Lovely to see them. Everything outnumbered by Goldfinch....I've counted 20 at any one time.
