More ospreys than greenfinch?

20 Jul

Well maybe not quite, but this year I’ve seen exactly the same number of ospreys in England as I have greenfinch – two. And thats only because I saw my second greenfinch of the year yesterday to catch up with my two osprey.

Last year when we moved to Bedlington, greenfinch and goldfinch were the most common visitor to our garden, easily outstripping sparrows, starlings and blackbirds. This year not a single visit by either.

Thats not good news, however the news yesterday that the 2nd pair of osprey at Kielder have two surviving chicks to go with the one from the established pair is excellent. A little more info here.
