As an OAP I'm an absolute newbie at all this so I hope I'm in the right place and going to be doing the right things. I've just been reading the latest RSPB mag and thought I'd let everyone know that I have both a male and a female bullfinch in my garden. They regularly visit my seed feeders and during this snowy period the male bullfinch has been a particularly wonderful sight with his oh so bright chest feathers.
Hi kezzie. Nice Bullfinch you've got there.
Hello kezzie welcome to the forum from Sheffield.
Yep you're in the right place and doing the right things.
Well done for getting Bullies they are a beautiful bird..hope to hear more from you.
And a big hello and welcome from the Irish fraternity in Co Cavan Ireland

Welcome from the black country. Lovely shot, feel free to post more.
Welcome form Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. Lovely pic. I usually see the male and female bullfinches together. They are beautiful
Thank you all for your posts. You've made me feel really welcome. Unfortunately I live in suburbia so don't get the chance to see much wildlife, but do enjoy watching the birds from my window.
Suburban gardens can hold a surprising amount of wildlife. In fact they have become an extremely important habitat. With the loss of so much hedgerow in the countryside suburban shrubberies provide both food and nest sites for many species. Keep feeding the birds and you never know what might turn up.
Hello and welcome from me in Lancashire.
Thats a lovely picture. I don't see bullfinches in my garden.
Welcome from me in Scotland, I don't see bullfinches in my garden either.
Hi kezzie and welcome to the forum from me in Berkshire.
Like Sparrow I don't get Bullfinches in my garden so I'm quite envious.
Hi Kezzie and welcome to the forum from Cheshire.
I also have not had bullfinches visiting my garden so i always enjoy seeing the pics everybody else takes of them.
Beautiful photos Linda. I only had the male bullfinch last year, but he's obviously been busy and found himself a mate since then!
Here are the latest pictures of 'him and her' 'her', and 'her' !
Welcome from the heart of Hampshire. Luv yer Bullfinch, cheers up a dull day.
