Lots of chaffies, but no Bramblings on the deck
An awful day - non-stop rain. I decided to check out one of the seeded tracks to see if I couldn't get some better snaps of a Brambling. I used one of the work pickups as a hide, and shelter. Thirty plus Chaffinches came down to feed, along with a couple of Blackbirds, but the only Brambling I saw was in the top of some adjacent cherries and refused to come down to be snapped!
Distant Brambling that preferred rotting apples to bird seed!
