Our commonest finch the Chaffinch is to be found just about everywhere in the UK. During the breeding season they feed on seeds and insects. During winter they will visit gardens and feed on split seeds from hanging feeders. The male and female are very different but both can be identified from their white wing bars.
Chaffinches build a cup shaped nest usually in the fork of a tree or shrub. Breeding starts in April and usually 1- 2 clutches are produced.
