Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

Brambling - Norfolk
In the woods at Sculthorpe Moor, we came across an extraordinarily large flock of Brambling. In total I would hazard a guess at there being close to 200. Quite a flighty bird. They were constantly coming into feed and then all at once would disperse into the trees. Not without good reason though. Sparrowhawks were doing their flybys, trying to take anything they could. None were successful while we were there. The Bramblings kept coming back to feed though.
A fantastically colourful bird, and one I don't tire of seeing in the winter months.
The hide with all the action.
Lovely markings seen on the backs.
Vast numbers could be seen feeding on the ground.
