The local lanes and footpaths, that I've walked around so many times this year, are good habitat for bullfinches. In spring they feed on buds of cherry plum, sloe and wild cherry in the hedgerows and copses. In summer I more often catch them feeding on the ground, eating dandelion seeds. It's rare to see a solitary bullfinch; the parents and young stay together right through the winter.
