After some research, its a bullfinch. His/Her son or daughter was with him/her too. Great to see.

I was just going to suggest it sounds like a male Bullfinch, photo from Darran further up the thread.

I have just seen a bird in my garden i didnt recognise. Here is a description;

black head,
orange/pinky breast
gray back
black tail
white stripe on its upper wing when it was perched.

It was a smallish bird.

Any ideas?


Could it be a Bullfinch ?

My wife and I started watching Springwatch this week, Decided we'd put something up in the garden. Put up a feeder with those fat balls in with a bit of bread and had a few sparrows. Filled up the bird bath and was pleased to see about 6 of them using that! Went and got a seed feeder today and a coconut which apperently is filled with some sort of fatty treat. We live in quite a concrete centric place but not far from the park and the golf course so we shall see if we get anything other than sparrows and jackdaws.

Recently seen jackdaws, finches( various ), green woodpecker, lesser spotted woodpecker,magpies, sparrows, robins, jays, and a red kite that passes now and then, plus sparrowhawks and buzzards. Feed the small birds, but not the larger ones, and i also live in Swansea.

As you know Darren, sparrows are on the decline, mainly tree sparrows, but house sparrows seem to be holding their own, dont know why.

The wife was worried about the birds in the warm weather so she just built a bird bath for them.
