Used to have loads of greenfinches and they all disappeared; none at all during Birdwatch weekend. Delighted to see four beauties just now, on my Squirrel Buster filled with sunflower hearts. Hooray!
Best Wishes, Rosy
Life should be full of birdsong!
Brilliant, they seem quite rare in gardens now, I have one or two but not that often!!
Sharon : )
Glad they're back, still waiting to see if mine return this year.
I had my first pair in the garden on Saturday. Numbers very low everywhere in my area these days compared to how many there used to be.

Like everyone else I have theories and opinions on lots of things I know b*gger all about.
I have quite a flock here north of the border, regular visitors number about 12
Hi Rosy, I had lots of greenfinch last summer and over the winter have kept seeing the odd one now and again, but since we had the snow last weekend I have got four or five coming each day now, so here's hoping that they stay around awhile for both of us!
Great Rosie :-)
The truth is I'm mad. We are all mad and many are too mad to know the truth.
I had never even seen a greenfinch until I put sunflower seeds in my feeders.Now I can have up to 8 at tbe same time on a daily basis.
Hi Helena welcome to the forum from Sheffield.
Good to hear you're getting a good number of Greenfinches.
My photos are on Flickr and Website
Yes ours stayed out of the picture for BGBW but they are back now, demolishing the sunflower hearts
Enjoy the world around you and keep taking photographsSee all my photos here Cheers Judi
Not seen any in my part of the world yet.
Kind regards Richard.
Ive even begun to recognise a few-Bandit because the black markings around his eyes look like a mask and Tiny who is,obviously, rather small!
Greenfinches are a mystery to me. About five years ago they were as common as muck in my garden, (London) but for some long time I haven't seen any at all. Where have they gone, and why?
I live in Kessingland in Suffolk and I have noticed that the Greenfinishes are down in numbers this year. I think I have only countered about two pairs this year that have come to feed on my feed station.
I shall be in Carlton Colville next week visiting my son so will see if I can spot any in that area
