Bullfinches and Dandelions

The garden seems to be full of birds gathering food for young. Blackbirds, starlings, robins, a little dunnock and probably some of the most striking, a pair of bullfinches. I got a somewhat blurred photo through the kitchen window of the male. He was making his way from dandelion head to dandelion head, happily munching his way through the seeds. The whole garden is full of their wispy seeds clocks at the moment. I have seen the goldfinches eating the seeds too. The only place I tend to remove dandelions from is the vegetable plot as when they are in flower they are also valuable to our pollinators.
