A Greenfinch Comes Visiting

A few years ago I had lots of Greenfinches visiting the bird feeders, that was until the dreaded finch disease reared its ugly head. Then for three years it was the Greenfinches which seemed to bring the disease to my garden. Consequently numbers of Greenfinches and Goldfinches rapidly declined.

Nowadays I watch with some trepidation when one arrives at the feeders.
Fortunately this one seemed to be in good health:




A bit of video:


  1. Lovely bright and healthy looking bird. They are a rare spot in my town now and they used to be so numerous.

  2. Simon: Looks like I have a pair nesting in one of my trees. Here's hoping for a healthy brood.


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
