Oh no! I have nearly run out of sunflower seeds and my supplier won't have any in until Monday! I will not be popular with my ever hungry Goldfinches! I was told that they really prefer niger seeds, but having purchased two feeders, and a twenty-five kilo sack of them, I discovered that actually they will only eat them if the queue to the sunflower seeds is too long: another case of wildlife not reading the right books! :-)
The Goldfinches first started visiting me around two years ago, after having ignored my feeders for many years. Since then they have taken over, with a flock of around thirty always present. They are delightful to look at with their stunning plumage, but they are argumentative little devils who frighten off the more timid Blue Tits.
