I've seen the chaffinches flitting about the garden recently but this is the first time one has stopped still long enough to be photographed!

I'm in a village, Clarice, but there is lots of open space plus woods close by and, of course, the village pond just over my back fence. I am very, very lucky :)

Hi Gee. Lovely little birds, chaffinches. I am in town. A five minute walk to the market.....if I walk fast! I was so pleased to see 2 of them this morning at 7.45am,on the garden path feeding with a variety of other birds. Suddenly they all scattered; then there was only one chaffinch! A male Sparrowhawk caught one as I stood and washed the dishes. He stood on it for quite some time. I took a couple of photographs through the kitchen window. Then he flew off with his catch.... thankgoodness. It is such a shame, when we attract birds by feeding, and the raptors know this. The now leafless trees give a clear lne of sight (as they attack by more or less level flight). We then get these kills even in a town setting.
