I opened the back door with the intention of walking round the garden, and found this delightful young bird in the porch, hiding behind the Nespresso recycling bag. It hopped down onto the step when it saw me, as shown in the main photo, and then struggled up onto the side of the back gate  before making off.


I think it is a young goldfinch, as immediately afterwards an adult came and landed on the top of the gate, and I’ve not seen one on the gate before. When I was going out again an hour later the young one was back in the porch, but made off when it saw me.
