This is why i dont dig up weeds

well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Managed to get a quick snap before the dogs made them fly off. If anyone knows what kind of birds they are I would love you to leave a comment. I think they are really pretty, ugly weeds sometimes draw the most beautiful of god's creatures dont they!

Pretty soon i will have to attack all the weeds in the garden so that my flowers can actually grow, but for now i'm happy enough waiting to see what little visitor will arrive next.

Could be Goldfinches, Caroline. Not up that much on birds! Enjoy. Carolxx

If I'm not mistaken you have a couple of bullfinches there - it's the flash of red on their heads that gives the clue. My ticket for the SECC show arrived today - can't wait for next week :) I'm off to check my bird book and if I'm wrong I'll let you know. Elizabeth x

Hi again, they are goldfinches - trust me to get it wrong before:( I should have remembered because when they come to our feeder I get really excited as they are such rare visitors for us. Elizabeth x

I like your excuse for not getting rid of the weeds. Goldfinches are such pretty birds.
