Greenfinch

I used to get a lot of greenfinches where I used to live but have only seen the odd one in the new place - lovely birds - I did try one before this attempt but it was a howler and it went in the bin!

I caught another glimpse of the sparrowhawk today, sitting on the fence next to the feeder just like last time but he must have seen me by the window and flew off straight away darn it!!!  Never mind - one more day at work then it's my day off and the weather's looking good for Friday for a nice long walk in the Lakes - can't wait!!!
