Serinus serinus
Linaria flavirostris
Pyrrhula pyrrhula

The bullfinch is a bulky bull-headed bird. The upper parts are grey; the flight feathers and short thick bill are black; as are the cap and face in adults (they are greyish-brown in juveniles), and the white rump and wing bars are striking in flight. The adult male has red underparts, but females and young birds have grey-buff underparts.

Linaria cannabina

The common linnet is a small passerine bird of the finch family, Fringillidae. It derives its scientific name from its fondness for hemp and its English name from its liking for seeds of flax, from which linen is made.

Coccothraustes coccothraustes

The hawfinch is recognisable by it's large powerful bill. Often shy and difficult to see, it does nevertheless visit bird tables from time to time.

Fringilla coelebs

A ground feeding bird with a consipcuous orange breast and white rump when it flies. The chaffinch is very common in northern Europe.

Chloris chloris

The greenfinch is 15 cm long with a wing span of 24.5 to 27.5 cm . It is similar in size and shape to a house sparrow, but is mainly green, with yellow in the wings and tail. The female and young birds are duller and have brown tones on the back. The bill is thick and conical. The song contains a lot of trilling twitters interspersed with wheezes, and the male has a "butterfly" display flight.
