Garden visits

I have had a few young visitors to the garden lately mainly Goldfinches.

Blue tits and Great tits have also been around but haven't come to the feeders until its too dark to get any shots of them.

We usually get Coaltits too, but so far I haven't seen any.

Here's a shot I got yesterday of a juvenile Goldfinch, we had two on and around the feeders along with two adult birds.

Photo taken with Nikon D70 + Sigma 170-500mm @ 440mm

Here's a Great tit which also caught my eye and perched for a few seconds before disappearing into the trees again.

Fingers crossed I will get the Bluetits before they lose the yellow cuteness.
