How many different kinds of finch can you spot in your garden?
ChaffinchThe Chaffinch is a regular garden visitor, easily recognisable by their loud twittering song and the bright markings including a flash of white which their underwings reveal while in flight.
GreenfinchThe Greenfinch is a common bird found in woodlands and hedgerows across Britain. Greenfinches are regular garden visitors and can be seen all year round. They are easily recognisable by their distinctive green and yellow feathers and their twittering song.
SiskinSiskins can be elusive, preferring the shade of coniferous woodlands. They have begun to frequent garden’s however, particularly in years of poor spruce seed crops. They are fairly common in Scotland and Wales, but can be seen more widely across England during the winter months.
GoldfinchA brightly coloured Finch with a red face and yellow streaked wing. Goldfinch are sociable and often breed in colonies. They have a joyful, twittering song and are a regular visitor to gardens.
BullfinchThe Bullfinch can be spotted in woodland, hedgerows and fruit orchards. They are also a fairly common visitor to larger gardens. Male Bullfinches are unmistakable by their bold red breast and black cap and can also be recognised by their whistling call.
BramblingThe Brambling is especially common in Beech woodlands. They often will visit gardens during winter and can be recognised by their bold orange breast and white belly. They tend to form flocks of many thousands and often join with chaffinches and other finches.
HawfinchThe Hawfinch is the UK’s largest finch. They can be timid and harder to spot than other types of finch. Sadly, they are becoming more difficult to spot as their traditional breeding areas have declined.
Lesser RedpollLesser Redpolls are often spotted in Silver Birch and Alder forests. Being elusive birds, they’re easiest to spot during winter, after all the trees have lost their leaves.
LinnetThe Linnet are widespread across the UK on lowland farmland. They can be recognised by their melodious song and can often be seen in large flocks during winter.
