Last week I posted some pictures of the Black-Crowned Night Heron which is one of my favourite birds although rarely seen in the UK. So if we are talking about resident birds then one of my favourites has to be the Bullfinch – Bright, attractive and cocky it is now one of the rarest of our resident finches. Once considered a pest species on farms and orchards, there are now only about 200,000 pairs in the whole of the UK and in some areas it has become so rare that it is quite an occasion when you come across them.
