Goldfinches feeding on thistledown

Just a quick update — a large flock of Goldfinches has recently arrived at the nature reserve to feed on thistledown. This isn’t necessarily that uncommon but goldfinches are striking enough to make it worth reporting!

We don’t have any photographs as yet but I did find this Goldfinch painting which could function as a substitute for now… 🙂

Update: Try this BBC video instead!
