I’m learning thanks to this programme, I was excited the other day watching all the Greenfinch’s lining up for their Sunflower seedout of the feeders, I posted a photo but sadly I called them Goldfinches, I;ve never seen a Goldfinch to my knowledge, I posted a photo today wanting to know the name, guess what it was…Yes a Goldfinch…Im so pleased…Thank you

Lovely visitors to have Bill and as LW says they do build in numbers once they get you on the feeding list.
