TRUM­PETER FINCH

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

May is the best month for these tiny rare south­ern finches. Tiny? Yes, only about Blue tit sized. In the UK, they are usu­ally found at the coast, with most records from the east of the coun­try, with Nor­folk and Kent be­ing favoured coun­ties. There have only been 16 ac­cepted records of Trum­peter Finch in the coun­try, but nine of these have been since the turn of the Mil­len­nium, so per­haps there is a trend of a slightly in­creased chance of find­ing one.
