What’s very interesting about these small birds it’s that they argue for food, sometimes they can be very, very noisy.

    1. Thank you!
      I discovered this bird this year, I even didn’t know it exists…
      But was a real pleasure to be only a few centimeters away from these little beauties.

  1. Excellent photos again! We have seen no bramblings at all this year, we think maybe because it’s been such a mild winter. Your photos show their plumage beautifully.

    1. Was the first year when I noticed them. At this moment, I am sure they are somewhere in North, perhaps in countries like Norway.
      I had a nice time watching them.
