Chudleigh garden Lesser Redpolls

After 30 years of waiting, I finally joined the garden Lesser Redpoll club this afternoon! A pair spent about an hour either taking seed from a feeder or sitting in elms, occasionally nibbling at buds. They were in the presence of pairs of Siskins and Greenfinches, both of which have been very scarce here this winter, plus half a dozen Goldfinches etc.
