Goldfinches on the teasel heads

goldfinch feeding on teasels, Wheatland Farm eco lodges, Devon

Vindicated! Untidyness by the office window has benefited the goldfinches – which are busy stripping the seeds from dead teasel heads. This picture was snapped through the fairly grimy glass, and I’m surprised it came out as well as it has. They are such beautiful little birds, cheering up winter days.
