This isn't the highest quality shot I've ever taken of a goldfinch, but I've posted it because of the background, which is some Fucus species of seaweed. This little chap was indeed foraging along the River Mersey tide line, which shows tremendous adaptability for a bird usually associated with picking seeds from thistles. I've noticed goldfinch numbers increasing - could they be the next pigeon?
