The Brambling flock unobtrusively go about their business. I tend to aim for Waxwing photos but the Bramblings are not without their charms although a bit hard to photograph: they are shy, feed busily and seem to like the shadows.
The flock seems to have shrunk to about 20……….
These photos are from a few days ago.
I remember finding my first Brambling in Penwortham in 1981 (!). They seem a lot more numerous in Hokkaido than in Lancashire.
