Some recent lax gardening resulted in a couple of Dandelions setting seed right outside my kitchen window. This is something I usually try and avoid at all costs as it invariably means I’ll have more of the blighters to contend with over the coming months. There was an unexpected benefit however in that our Bullfinch pair seemed to absolutely love them. Over a couple of days they slowly devoured the lot, usually just an arms length away on the other side of the glass. The result was an outstanding series of views and my bests shots of this species to date.
While we are on the subject of weeds I should point out the Mint that is in front of the female bird. Word of warning – definitely only ever plant it in a pot. I’ve got the stuff popping up all over the place!
