There is a flock of 6 bullfinch going around the gardens of Crail at the moment. Bullfinches come and go in Crail – we can have several years without them – but there seem to be a lot about at the moment. I have been hearing them all over the East Neuk, their soft whistling “who” that they use to keep in contact is a giveaway. Despite their very bright plumage they can be quite inconspicuous, often staying quite still – it is only their calls that really draw attention.
