I was sat watching the television last night when I heard a bang on the window.
My bird feeders are close to the house and a Goldfinch had flown straight into my patio window.
After flying into a rose bush and getting caught up in the thorns...
...it freed itself then landed on the ground just a few feet from the window it had crashed into.
Obviously stunned and in shock it lay still for over 20 minutes... eyes shut tight as it rested.
Eventually it started to recover... becoming aware of it's surroundings.
I was lying on the floor to captured these images... it's the closest I've been to a Goldfinch.
I was so pleased to see it fly off just a few minutes later... hopefully non the worse for it's mishap.
