Punk Goldfinch

This Goldfinch has been on our feeders most of today, along with other goldfinches, the usual mass of Chaffinches and Tree Sparrows, with Siskin and Greenfinch and a large number of Blue, Great and Coal Tits that seem to have arrived en masse over the past week.  We also have at least two pairs of Gt Spotted Woodpeckers here and perhaps one or two of last year's broods are still hanging about on the peanuts and fat balls.

I've never seen a Goldfinch with this startling orange face, but perhaps its a regular variation.
