This Bullfinch has not the same overall reddish breast colouring as our Bullfinches have but they certainly have the same habits as ours. beautiful images
Thanks Margaret, this is one of the east Asian subspecies............
You're very lucky to be able to see Bullfinches do that. Even better to take so many pictures of the process. Very scarce and very shy around here, as you know.
My brother had one in his garden last month, it's been many many years since I last saw one in the UK.
