Picking the Ice Off

This Goldfinch is busy removing the ice from the top of a teasel so that it can get to the seeds.

This winter so far has been a great one for me. I have had 6 Goldfinches visiting my garden especially when it was snowy and frosty. They have found the teasels I've been growing for them. They also like the seeds from Evening Primrose and I'm glad I hadn't got round to tidying them away. I think they've stripped all the seeds from my garden now. So I've put up a feeder for them.
