Bullfinch. Bringer of Spring







Bullfinches return to my garden every spring(?!?) to destroy the buds on the trees and shrubs alongside the dyke. They are already back and due to the bad light and awful camera equipment here are a couple of bad shots of one of the males.






p.s. there were 2 males and a female thus far - a female down on last year.

What date did you 1st see 'em back? Just to put in 2010 Hull Valley report. If you get more than 3 let me know with dates
Cheers
PS Sorry, hadn't realised your count had gone below 503. Anyway, you are on the up again!
