Casualty of windows....


Casualty of windows....
Originally uploaded by Jagosilver.

A week or so ago, we heard a loud bang come from our kitchen, which sounded just as if someone ha thrown something aainst the window.
Iwent to look and found this bird in the floor. It twitched a couple of times, then lay still....

I put it in the hedge at the edge of the churchyard (2 feet from our back gate). The following morning it was gone , with a trail of feathers leading back into the brambles.

Anyone know what sort of bird it is? It looks Finchy to me.....

Well...according to my 1962 Popular Handbook of British Birds it be a greenfinch?
