European Goldfinches

At the start of autumn in my overgrown field  juvenile Goldfinch numbers were up to and around 50 -100 birds ,feeding on grass seed and thistles,very shy and any approach they were up and gone.
As winter nears the numbers have got less to 8 -25 birds and they are coming to the feeders regularly.
These finches would rival the most exotic for colour and beauty and  are a joy to have in your own backyard.
This is also my first post containing Goldfinch...Welcome to the blog Goldys
