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 :-)

we have a beautiful jay who visits the herb garden every morning - great to see him #mannafromdevon #behindthescenes

I was so excited when I saw my first and only ever Jay bird. Spotted over my local nature reserve whilst walking my dogs, they are so beautiful.

eurasian collared dove seem to have chased most of the other birds out of the area.  They're spreading fast but seem pretty docile.  However I have't seen a meadowlark since they appeared 3 years ago!
