Been a busy week, I'm glad to say, although I always find when I'm busy that I tend not to keep as up to date with the blog as I'd like. This lunch time however I managed to take a couple of decent photies of a goldfinch. Should have been two goldfinches, but this chap's father, who, conscientious chap, was still feeding his offspring a few seconds before I took this; is also a wily old bird, and camera shy. Still, managed to get the two photoes above. The goldfinch, in my opinion, is the prettiest of all our small birds. I'm sorry to say that I've seen them being sold as cage birds (and very small cages they were in, too) in Malta, seven or eight years ago.
Nearly bed time, so I wish you all a very good night.
Warm Regards, Mike and Ann.
