Mr & Mrs Bullfinch…
Colourful visitors this morning, shining like fireworks in the monochrome landscape. Beautiful little birds, such welcome winter visitors.
You can see he has a beakful of buds – from the corcodus (mirabel) tree outside my window.
Luckily all the cats are inside by the fire – last winter Hobbs caught a bullfinch who wasn’t paying attention – and after a good feed on plum buds, all pink and grey bullfinches flew off to another feast.
