How to attract Goldfinches to your garden.

Goldfinches are one of Britain's most beautiful birds. If you want to try and attract them to your garden, you can do the following 3 things;

1. Plant a pine or larch tree.

2. Add thistles and teasels to your garden borders. Goldfinches love eating the seeds from these plants.

3. Get some seeds and add them to a birdfeeder. (There is special mixes specifically made to attract goldfinches, the main seed they like is Niger seeds, but also like seeds such as linseed, and hempseed).
