Hi Guys. I was out in the Garden This Evening and Spotted Those Guys on the Wires. Just Wondering what are they ? ( a Finch of some sort Probably) (see pics). They Disappeared very Quickly. Sorry for the Quality of Photos.

I had them in my garden for the first time this year. Lovely little fellows and very agile.

By chance, are you growing something new in the garden to attract these?

Since I planted alder trees a few years back and it has brought a lot of new spcies I'd never seen before...

No I'm not. And my garden has had a rich variety of food and cover for birds for a long time but they have only begun visiting recently. It may have something to do with the age of my estate - all the gardens are mature and fairly bird friendly. One of my bird books says they 'move through hedgerows and woodland and are increasingly visiting garden bird-feeders.' I expect the gardens of our small estate resemble a woodland edge; there are mature field hedges close by and woodland a half kilometre away.
As you have found, it's all about biodiversity.

They seem to be spasmodic visitors. We had quite a large flock of them visit us in 2007 but have never seen one since.
