According to the experts; the people who know such things, this is not a bird of concern.
With a diet consisting of invertebrates in the summer, along with mostly seeds, they have the widest diet of the finches. No surprise they are doing well then, with an estimated population of 5.8 million in Britain and up to 30 million during the winter, with the arrival of continental birds.
They live just about anywhere; woodlands, (deciduous, mixed and conifer), parklands, gardens and hedgerows. No wonder they do so well, with such adaptability.
The males are a combination of colours ......... a reddish pink breast, bluish crown and nape, a brown back, grey-green rump, and white wing bars.
So common, so colourful, and yet frequently overlooked by many so called 'birdwatchers'.
If the bird was 'rare', then everyone would be clamouring for a glimpse.
Here's a couple of pictures I took on a Chaffinch twitch yesterday.
Have a good weekend.
