Lots of activity on my feeders during this cold snap. Small flock of Goldfinches (6 or so) are regular visitors over the past few weeks. This Brambling appeared yesterday amongst a mixed flock of finches, appears to have moved on today. Seasons greetings to everyone. Stephen

Brambling Whitley Head, Steeton

20+ Brambling, in one flock were in the Beech trees when I arrived about 10am. They quickly dispersed as I approached and proved to be very flighty, not easy to get near enough to photograph, especially as they tended to stay high up in the trees. A handful were feeding on an Alder by the farmhouse where the road turns 90degrees, I managed a few shots before mist and cloud encroached from the east.

Cheers Stephen
