|The River Tiffey at Kimberley|
|Bullfinch (juvenile) near Kimberley.|
A small pond surrounded by large Sallows, Hawthorn, and Oak held several species. Goldfinches present (juveniles) seen, Great Tits, a female Yellowhammer and a couple of juvenile Bullfinches were seen through a gap in a hedge.
The juvenile Bullfinch pictured here was viewed briefly through a gap in a hedge. This is a useful identification photograph of the species and shows the bright white rump which is present in all age groups of this species. The Bullfinch is quite a thick set Finch and in winter there should be no confusion with this species and the more slender Brambling (also with white rump) when flying away from you.
A stop at the beautiful River Tiffey at the Kimberley/Carleton Forehoe parish boundaries produced an in-flight Kingfisher and 3 Mallard on the river.
