Bramblings in my Redesdale Garden

I have been a little surprised by a pair of bramblings, lingering into late April in my Redesdale garden. The female is active this morning but I have not seen the male for a couple of days so perhaps he has moved on. I know that bramblings sometimes stay as late as May and have, albeit rarely, bred in the UK. Whatever the story with this pair, it is a delight to have them in the garden.

On the 30 April, the female was not seen, so she too might have moved on. The two pictures below were digiscoped using my Nikon ED50 fieldscope and Nikon Coolpix P5100.
