On the subject of Bramblings because of this cold snap of weather more and more birds will be coming to gardens for their source of food, especially finch flocks worth checking those Chaffinch flocks that come to your bird tables more carefully, you could have a winter visiting Brambling amongst them. Bramblings will utilise any seed supply when the ground is covered in snow. They would certainly make a welcome addition to any garden list.
