A charming day!

The most common bird in our garden, after the hedge sparrow, is the goldfinch. These small, colourful birds love the sunflower seeds we put out for them. We once read that to attract them we should put out niger seeds but they soon learned that a better, more energy giving seed is the sunflower heart.

The collective noun for goldfinch is a charm. so when ten goldfinch arrived for a mid-morning snack it was safe to say we had been charmed!
