Bullfinch

I am VERY excited, as I have just seen a bullfinch in my Hawthorn tree! I haven’t seen one of these glorious birds in years. When I used to help with apple picking the farmer would ┬átrap the males in cages, so their distress calls would warn off other birds. How things have changed in a relatively short time. Now their crimson colours are seldom seen.
