• A Charm of Goldfinches

I had some old nyger (niger/nyjer) seed left and so I scattered them on the ground in what I thought was a vain hope to attract the goldfinches that sometimes visit the garden at this time of year.  It has been an inordinate success. Flocks have colonised the patch for a week, numbering over two dozen at some times.  My little Canon Ixus has only a x12 optical zoom, so I could not get the close-up that the subject warranted, but here’s the best impressionist shot of the bunch.  Note to self: get a better zoom for next year!
