Two goldfinches have a mid-air fight after struggling to get enough space on a bird feeder in a British back garden. Photographer Laurie Campbell snapped away from a hide in his garden for 30 hours to get a picture he was happy with. Laurie, from Berwick-on-Tweed, Northumberland, said: "It can take weeks for the goldfinches to find this bait but once they do, they are hooked."

Chaffinch. I've had one of these guys outside the last few days. Such a cheery song, and so pretty to look at. As with many birds, the males are more colourful and are the singers :-)
