Beauty

With any picture of goldfinches that I've taken and blown up the eyes give them a sinister look. Very strange.

Goldfinches

Yes, they are definitely very much on the increase.
Has supplementary feeding (nyjer and sunflower seeds) made such a difference, or is there another reason, as I would have expected wild teasels and thistles to have decreased in the last few decades as the countryside is "tidied up"
