Description

Saw plenty of Chaffinch during my observation today. Many of them flew from tree to tree usually ending on the willow. Many were singing and talking on the willow at once. There were groups of 2-3 birds flying together at once. Could identify these birds because of the white strip on their wings.

Description from Wikipedia

The Common Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs), usually known simply as the Chaffinch is a common and widespread small passerine bird in the finch family. The male is brightly coloured with a blue-grey cap and rust-red underparts. The female is much duller in colouring but both sexes have two contrasting white wings-bars and white sides to the tail. The male bird has a strong voice and sings from exposed perches to attract a mate.
