The Bullfinch is still visiting my garden.............................................................

I was so pleased to see the Bullfinch in my garden last weekend... it's not a bird I see that often.

 Well he's still visiting my garden feeders...  and the sunflower hearts are going down a treat.

I fill my feeders with sunflower hearts, peanuts and nyger seed... plus suet balls.
I am getting over twelve different bird species regularly in my little garden on a daily basis... 

...the plants are coming into flower... it's all looking good.

Looks like crossing fingers works, I've had mine crossed for you sing I saw the weekend visit.
You sound happy and it makes my heart sing that your birds, garden and life are doing well.

A bird I miss on the Isle of Man, not seen one since we left the mainland UK. I remember them fondly eating all the cherry blossom buds. Gorgeous close ups.

I'm very jealous Andrew. Always good to see the Bullfinch, but in the garden is just a dream. Great shots.

The Bullfinch is very handsome and so is your garden!

Andrea Priebe said...

Spring is wonderful and helping it along with Sunflower hearts seems to be doing the trick. 12 species of birds is a wondeful number, and great for taking pictures. I look forward to following you success.
