Bird Watching (UK) - - Destination London -

Let’s start where I first be­gan, with the Goldfinch. If we are asked to imag­ine a Goldfinch, what springs to mind is a bird feed­ing on a seed head of Teasel. With their stout beaks, Goldfinches are well adapted to deal­ing with tough seeds husks. The Goldfinch thrives in London and charms can of­ten be seen fly­ing from one London Plane tree to the next. The seed balls of the cap­i­tal’s pop­u­lar street tree pro­vide good eat­ing for these lit­tle grani­vores (seed eaters). Look out for Goldfinches out­side the breed­ing sea­son when charms can reach more than 50 in­di­vid­u­als strong.
