Chaffinch - Fringilla coelebs

Just a little larger than a sparrow, this was once regarded as our most abundant resident, it is now less common and makes good use of the bird table.

Making its neat nest-cup in a convenient hedge or tree fork, it lays three to six buff eggs with purple-brown blotches in one or more broods, between April and June. The female incubates them in about fourteen days and the young are ready to fly in another twelve days.
