I have seen no greenfinches in my vicinity since last August, at least(that was when I first thought'not seen any greenfinches for a while). For years, we have had at least 8 visiting ,constantly, but now, none. Nor are there any in the lane.
this is quiet rural area, with only scattered houses, and I did wonder about a stoat that I see quite often, but all the other small birds(goldfinch, chaffinch, blue, great, coal and long tailed tits, dunnock, wren, sparrows(by the dozens) etc etc, are all doing very well.We have even seen the bullfinch much more,so not sure about the stoat as predator theory. Is there something going on with greenfinches that i have not heard about?
