22nd October - back to green!

As if to disagree with my comments about everything beginning to turn gold, this little fellow was down in the wood today - a greenfinch!

Busy taking seeds from a dry thistle head, he had better make the most of it, as rain is predicted soon.  Greenfinches are rather aggressive little birds, and this one took a real dislike to a siskin who was also interested in the thistle head.  The siskin looked thoroughly appalled at his language!!
