I got such a nice surprise today.
I've finally got Goldfinches coming to feed at the new feeder I put up in my back garden. I filled it with niger seeds.
That's the first I've seen them this year I was almost giving up hope and was thinking I had wasted money buying the new special feeder for them Whistle d'oh! and suddenly not only one but 4 of them were there also just after that I had 2 greenfinches.
Sadly I've no blue [CENSORED] nesting in the garden this year but I have a pair of blackbirds who have built a nest in one of my fir trees just beside the greenhouse and they wait every morning for me to go out with titbits for them -they just love a cut up apple and are quite tame.
Here are some photographs I managed to get today you'll probably have to enlarge them -once again these photographs were taken through a window
Hope you enjoy them
Emmy

I have several Goldfinches here but in the U.S. they are bright yellow and black. The females are a drab olive color and in the winter you cannot tell males from females. In the spring males molt and become a striking bright yellow.

I have one niger seed feeder. They also love to eat my black-eyed susan's seeds in the fall.

Your finches are lovely, Emmy but very different from the ones I have here.
