Goldfinch frozen in Summer Time
This is turning out to be some Summer again. The mists lifted by lunchtime today but the rain hasn't stopped. When the goldfinches arrived to feed on the niger seed tree as we call it, the numbers vary from 1 or 2 up to 8 at times, squabbles can easily break out, as our three feeders can only accommodate 6 at any time. So when the siskins are around as well things get interesting
Time to play with the camera from the comfort of the conservatory and try to capture some movement.
This proves difficult when they appear out of the overhanging silver birch, this is the best of the bunch for now.
