I've seen quite a few in Old Trafford.The Big Garden Bird Watch for 2019 shows no overall increase for goldfinches nationally though,coming in at 6th place for most common bird seen in gardens.Does have any idea about Manchester increases?

Thanks! The only living beings to turn up were bumble bees and the odd small white butterfly . None of my 2 legged friends managed to make it :-( Thats the 2nd time I've had total "no shows " to my garden party invites in the past few weeks. Should change my name to Norman!

Great idea. You should call it the "Brownfield Bimble" walk :-)

Don’t introduce thousands of disease spreading bees which will out compete native wild bee populations for food. 😑😑😑

Agreed! The plantains are a food plant for a lot of different moth caterpillars and their seeds are eaten by birds!
