Friday at the Flicks (Sparrows, Greenfinch, Goldfinch)

Yesterday morning I was wondering whether there would be a Friday at the Flicks this morning. About 10a.m. my internet connection failed. Phoned Zen and after nearly an hour trying various tests and configurations still no connection though the phone link appeared to be live. The problem was passed on to BT and fortunately by late afternoon things began to work again.

Nothing spectacular today. My usual crowd of House Sparrows which often arrive like a cloud rather than a flock.

It has been great to see the occasional young Greenfinch

The juvenile Goldfinches and their parents are very regular visitors at the moment.

This morning was the first of the 'Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness'  but the Sun soon burned off the thick mist which had enveloped the village first thing.

Have a great weekend observing the antics of the wildlife around you.


  1. Thanks again for Friday, good job you posted I thought it was Thursday.
    There would have been no food Sunday for the hoards had you not got your internet fixed. I have had far less problems since I went to a 3G Dongle cost is £15/month 2/3rds the price of AOL.

  2. The Greenfinch is such a messy eater isn't he lol
    Looks like he's enjoying it though ;)

  3. I get many weekends like that Adrian - mixing up the days. That was the first problem I had had with Zen Internet and it was probably a BT problem, someone seems to have mixed up the connections among all the upgrading they have been doing.

  4. It is Keith. I end up sweeping up the bits dropped and putting them on a ground feeder for the other birds.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
