Last photos of 2016 - a few birds in the garden

 Male Chaffinches gain their colour as the soft tips of their feathers abrade to reveal a more colourful plumage underneath.

 Goldfinches stay nice and bright through the winter. Their melodic twittering is the main noise in the garden at the moment.


 Lots of Blackbirds around, form duller 1st winter females to handsome adult males with bright yellow bills.

 Blue Tits make use of the food and are happy feeding on seeds, fatballs or peanuts.

A much duller cock Blackbird with a dull bill. Not sure is this is a young local bird or one of the many continental visitors we host in winter.
