Goldfinch on Dandelion

We have recently noticed many flocks of Goldfinch when walking and driving through our local countryside. We have speculated that the species may indeed be one that is on the increase.

This morning from the kitchen window we noticed this one making the most of the dandelion heads on our lawn. It being a wet morning some of the seedheads were closed up but this didn't present a problem for the Goldfinch with his sharp beak as he helped himself by tearing them apart.
