PENSTHORPE

Monday 14th February.
Visited Pensthorpe Reserve today and spent time in the Woodland Hide.


The Brambling, Fringilla montifringilla, is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae. The Brambling is similar in size and shape to a Chaffinch. Breeding-plumaged male Bramblings are very distinctive, with a black head, dark upperparts, orange breast and white belly



The Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs), also called by a wide variety of other names, is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae,The Chaffinch's large double white wing bars, white tail edges and greenish rump easily identify this 14–16 cm long species. The breeding male is unmistakable, with his reddish underparts and a blue-grey cap. The female is drabber and greener, but still obvious.
