Snow (and) Finches

I have been getting a lot of solace from watching the birds in the back garden since the new lockdown was imposed. Today, heavy snow brought frenetic activity to the feeders, with the display of up to 30 Goldfinches adding dazzling colour to proceedings. No sign of yesterday's Long-tails, but the female Blackcap visited regularly throughout the day, being the last bird on the feeders at dusk again. Good numbers of Greenfinches today, up to eight, a real treat. Several Chaffinches are around but are a little more furtive than their more brightly-coloured cousins.
