Found this lovely male bullfinch on the Rodwell Trail this morning, one of three birds present just above Marsh Road.
The bullfinch is busy picking buds off the blackthorn stems, an unusual diet for a bird from a family that are largely seed specialists.
The observant amongst you (and those watching in high resolution) will have noticed a couple of goldfinches in the top of the bush at the start of the video.
Here's a better shot of a goldfinch I obtained at Radipole Lake last March.
The goldfinch's much longer bill is better adapted at pulling seeds out of flower heads, such as teasels or alders.
Here's another finch, this time a singing male chaffinch at Arne last May.
Chaffinches are generalist seed-eaters, like sparrows, spending a lot of their time feeding on the ground and frequently coming to bird feeders.
Of course there are lots of other birds in this family, try searching for "finch" on iSpot
