Earlier, I opened the back door, about to go outside and do some spraypainting, and saw that the lawn was full of little wee birds, eating seeds off dandelions: gold finches!

They stayed for a bit and then all flew off, so I grabbed a bird feeder from the front garden, put some niger seeds in it and hung it in the back garden.

(We bought the seeds, hopefully, when we first moved in but we've never seen a trace of a goldfinch before and didn't bother to put any out last winter.)

Fingers crossed they'll be back and find it!

It's chilly out there. I wouldn't be surprised if we get a frost.
