A pair of male Bullfinches in a West Sussex garden.

A pair of male Bullfinches were in the garden this morning eating dried up blackberries.
Presumably the seeds have some nutritional value.

Fieldfare back again 20 Dec 2019

And again today, 21 December 2019
And still eating the apples on 22 December 2019.
 Greenfinches eating Cat's-ear, Hypochaeris sp. in one of the wild meadow lawns.  What a joy to see!

Fieldfare still in the garden today


More or less centre above is a solitary Fieldfare, which has been feeding here for several days.




It aggressively chases off the blackbirds and other thrushes, which otherwise feed happily together.
