Bullfinch tick

Northern Bullfinch

Three Bullfinch were present in Finstown early this p.m. The male was really bright as can be seen above. One female was observed through the scope and showed the characteristic pinky grey body plumage and the very fine pale border between the black of the head and the neck. No calls were heard. Also present were four Goldfinch.

The Bearded Seal was on the slip. There were 350 Twite and about 100 Linnet at the school bird crop.

Back at home there were three Chaffinch and the 1st winter Peregrine sat on a fence post viewed from the garden. A Sparrowhawk raided the garden.
