I saw these little chaps a few weeks ago on the grass beyond our house. So we bought a new feeder and some niger seeds and have now been rewarded
The most exciting birds we have ever had in the garden. I watched them feeding for about five minutes and then they flew off but returned later. Hopefully they will be frequent visitors now.
Our latest crop from the allotment
when they are this size you can eat them whole and very tasty they were too.
