I have noticed there's a lot less of them so far this year. Maybe because it's so effing cold?

It's those big black and white bastards I don't like.

They named a kids TV show after them in the seventies. :)

Collective noun for a group of goldfinches is a charm. Quite appropriate.

Most birds we get in Spain are very wary of humans, even blackbirds and robins. Probably down to Spaniards out hunting shooting anything that moves. My favourite is the hoopoe ( pronounced hoop oo) As well as being quite tame their plumage is amazing.

I'd imagine that a decent dollop of seagull shit would go straight through your rusty old Signum like a hot knife through butter?  :)

We had a hoopoe in the lane behind us a few years ago. It must have been lost as not native in UK.

I believe you may be confusing the mighty Signum with your deceased derv BMW, which has risen from the dead to give life to Aldi baked beans tins. :)
