Greenfinches in the garden

Not for the first time this summer have I had a brood of greenfinches at the feeders.
This young bird was fluttering its wings to draw the attention of its parent to provide food.

I've also had over 40 house sparrows daily and every few days the numbers increase with new youngsters arriving. Our neighbours roof has produced 2 broods but others still seem to be fledging.

It's been a great year for breeding birds in Cornwall, due I reckon to an "ordinary" summer of a bit of rain and a bit of sun but no great excesses of either.
