Golds, Greys and Greens

Kay's folks have a hawthorn tree in the garden, next to their feeding station, and as the light falls kindly in the morning it's a great place to sit quietly and catch the incoming birds. Goldfinch flocks can be 30-40 strong, but not so many at present

Collared doves are equally crowded - 22 at their peak, exceeding even the 19 we had in our garden last week. I know this is similar to a recent post, but I just love the red eye and powder blue feathers, and this is a better shot.

The starlings, however, still look quite rough as the sparkling winter coat comes through This greenfinch was a bit scruffy, but a nice enough snap.
