several cock Greenfinches now 'singing', I had an early bird in his 'butterfly' display flight on a Penshaw job site yesterday, with the pair prospecting in an ornamental Cypress later.
a couple more singing around town (Houghton) this morning, as they have over recent years...
Are we seeing signs of a comeback ?
They certainly seem to be doing better in suburban / town areas rather than open countryside here around DH4.
(Two Greenfinch chicks only just hatched in a Leyland Cypress I was 'topping out' with a chainsaw in Schincliffe Village early one April. Adult bird quickly back in attendance.)
