Following the Raptor's claim to have seen, and even photographed bullfinches on Ardnamurchan, Mavis Scott sends the Diary this lovely picture of a female enjoying a meal of daisies during their holiday in Glenborrodale in June 2013.  She also claims to have seen a male near Salen.

The Diary is beginning to wonder why it's only other people who see this spectacular little bird.

Many thanks to Mavis Scott for the photo.


  1. A pair of bullfinches were in our small cherry tree eating the buds last April,as they were quite common where we came from I never attached much importance to them. It will be interesting to see if they come again this year.

  2. I have stayed in glenborodale on hol's for the past 5-years and have occasionally seen bullfinches in the garden which has lots of tree cover.
