bullfinch on the bird table
[SinglePic not found]
Briefly getting the paintbox out . Back of an envelope sketch of one of the 3 bullfinches that have been attending the feeders for a couple of months. Seems to be a pair and another single male. The pair always travelling together. All messy eaters, usually a mush of sunflower around their bills.
The other highlight of this largely homebound spring summer has been the appearance of common spotted orchids on the little square of grass on our allotment. They are now flowering. So when the weather is kinder I’ll get the gouache out again for those.
