The gold finches must be more friendly in Norfolk than Hampshire. They come into our garden, but I can't get close enough to photograph them. Lovely photo....congratulations.

How did I miss this. Poor little goldfinch - my robin looked a bit bedragled too today.
Jacque: Where did you get your niger seed feeder from?
The ones I saw at a garden centre was about £12 which I thought to be a bit steep!

The rain seems to affect their heads more than their wings, poor little things. Bet they dont go frizzy like me though when I've been caught in the rain.

Jacque..our goldfinches love the rain !

17 May, 2009

 

Really ! Do they bath in your Pond 2 ? :)

Aaah....As long as theres food nothing will keep a goldfinch away. We have some visit our front garden and love those back thistle seeds, even in gale force winds. If I can manage to take a decent photo of them I will upload it.

Awwww, lovely.

I get nowt but sparrers and blackbirds in my garden.

Well caught Jaque, I know how hard it is to catch them. Your camera would be clicking all day in my garden I live next door to a church yard with nature conservation at the back of that. Alas I only have my phone camera so I have to get close to them to get a decent photo

Sparrows & Black Birds Sound Great 2 me Llew :) Wow! must be Fab Living so close to a Nature Conservation Morgana ? U must invest in a Camera ul never look back :)
