A couple of very smart looking goldfinch on the Lucy Brook side of the Hay Meadow marsh this morning. They were flying down from the bushes to land precariously on the stems of plants/grasses at the edge of the marsh. (Beyond my expertise unfortunately to identify what they were visiting!) Quite comical to see the stem sway and bend furiously with the weight and the bird flapping its wings to maintain balance. Then, once stable, they proceeded to tuck into the ‘flowering’ top of the plant.
