Brambling Fringilla montifringilla

Bramblings are seen along the coast as they migrate into the UK to and from their winter grounds in the north and west of the county. They are the same size and shape as a chaffinch; males have an orange breast and a white belly. Bramblings feed on beech mast and their location, and the number of birds, depends on the prevalence of beech mast.
