Brambling again

Back to the wood car park to watch the Chaffinches, tits and a couple of Bramblings feed on the grain and feeders there.
I should admit that before yesterday, I'd only ever seen one Brambling (last year, a female in Larkeyvalley wood). So they're still a bit special to me.

One of the thirty or so Chaffinches. Strangely, the hens outnumbered the cocks, in contrast to the flocks seen on the fields recently.

I haven't checked in in a while. Beautiful bird photos. It's just fun to see birds that I never see. They seem exotic to me. Thanks!

I enjoy your blog,as for the Bramblings I had ten in my front garden,(Ringwould) they were in the company of forty Chaffinches two siskins and a warbler. They cost a fortune in seed.

Thanks for the comments......

Nut : Bramblings seem exotic to me too!

Flyntlander : maybe your food is attracting the birds away from me? I'm envious!

The Brambling is very pretty. I hope you see more.
