[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Chaffinches are one of the most common birds in Britain, with almost six million breeding pairs. During winter, chaffinches from northern Europe migrate to Britain. Curiously, it's typically the females that migrate - the male birds prefer to remain in Sweden. Chaffinches have been known to live for a remarkable 14 years. Details of their loud, jangling song vary from bird to bird, and there are even regional dialects in different parts of the UK.
