Today I was cut-off midsentence by a squeak of excitement and I was pushed aside. 'How rude!" you might think but I just couldn't compete for attention (understandably, I was droning on) as a pair of goldfinch flew in.
They chittered and trilled quietly to each other as they searched for seeds among the dried thistle heads in the wildlife area. These are the first of these beautiful birds we have seen here at the Phoenix and lovely ones they are to add to our birdlist - they're smashing!
Only two rather dodgy pics of their visit. Here's what they look like elsewhere and not snapped by me.
