Bullfinch – forty years ago in my nature notebooks

It’s forty years since the very first time I saw a Bullfinch. I’ve seen them since and always appreciated them as a special treat. Here’s the entry in my nature notebooks from 1 April 1977:

I’m out in a country park when I see them: a pair of Bullfinches. All these years later they are still such a treat to see. Thankfully, today I got more than just ‘a glimpse’.
