I'm not an expert by any means. This year is the first time I've noticed a bullfinch in my garden. But if you go to http://blx1.bto.org/birdfacts/results/bob17100.htm on the BTO website this has distribution information

Hedges

Certainly round where I am, if you want to find Bullfinches at this time of year, just drive around the country roads, or walk down them, even better. They are one of the commonest birds to be seen flitting ahead of you down the hedges, white rumps flashing.

Skulking in scrubby woodland and hard to see in the summer, but easy to see at this time of year in hedgerows. Surprisingly common, too...I can easily ring over 50 a year in my local wood.
