This feels like a question on QI Mike, I know what bird I want to say but fear the claxons will go off, and anyway if it is what I think it is, it wouldn’t be here, so to avoid all traps I’m going with juvenile rosefinch, wrong answer I know, but no traps sprung 🙂
Ii does look like the feeding station at Summerleys were I got similar image!
It’s not Summer Leys, Doug 🙂
Greenfinch in there somewhere, if not all of it?! Looking forward to hearing what, where and who!
Greenfinch which has been eating Blackberries
Glad you said that Bob, I saw Greenfinch do the same thing at the feeding station at Sleys, and looked exactly like this.
I think it’s a linnet x greenfinch
When you enlarge the photo you can see it has been feeding on some sort of berry.
