We finally managed to get a photo of our goldfinch pair. They come every morning at 10 am to have their breakfast. Every day we get excited to see them. They are very pretty, aren't they? If I had a tele lense for my camera I would hover at the window all morning. Alas I don't have one so we sit there doing school work with the iPhone and Big Monkey's little Canon at the ready to jump up the moment we spy them.
They still are very shy and they fly away at the smallest movement but we hope they relax a bit more soon. The great tits, the robin and the starling too visit regularly and the magpies check every day twice whether there are worms in the feeder for them.
