Fantastic shot! Where do you keep getting these captures of birds? I want more varities of birds in my garden, bored of blackbirds now.

Try sunflower seeds - they are fantastic for all kinds of finches

Another fantastic shot again Dave, was the bullfinch taken at Pennington as well? Bullfinch(pyrrhula pyrrhula) widespread in north-west, most numerous in southern England and Ireland. Monumental's right Emma, just hang nuts and seeds in the garden to see all varities of birds.

FOR GODS SAKE - ENOUGH WITH THE BIRDS!!! If you want to post pictures of birds join a photography site or a bird watching site, not - and look at the header - Wigan world. I'm not saying they are badly taken, you're obviously a skilled photographer, but what does it show of Wigan to the world? This could've been taken anywhere

WHAT HAVE THEY GOT TO DO WITH WIGAN? HOW IS THIS SHOWCASING WIGANWORLD?

Boring boring boring boring and..... oh! Boring.

If you read my post you would have seen I didn't take anything away from the photo being by a skilled photographer. My point is... what has this got to do with Wigan?

Oh, by the way, the comments are from the same people who always say nice things about the birds not attracting any new posters is it? And since you all seem to like the same thing perhaps you could start your own ornithology site??
