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).
