  1. 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!

    Greenfinch in there somewhere, if not all of it?! Looking forward to hearing what, where and who!

    Greenfinch which has been eating Blackberries

  4. 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.
