Pond is brilliant at bringing stuff into the garden, as long as you don't have young kids.Trying my hardest to bring as many bees and butterflies to my garden as possible... So therapeutic... Sounds sad but I love it
Where abouts are you mate?That's kinda odd, as I thought goldfinch were essentially the new 'sparrow' - along with great/blue tits they are the most common visitors around my parts. The other commons are green finches, long-tails, blackbirds, robins, chaffinches, sparrows, wrens, goldcrests, magpies, wood pigeons, collard doves. More rare: stock doves and jays, and we usually have a wood pecker hanging around, though not of late.
This also hung around for a few days

Been looking at house recently and looked at a couple up there but was mindful it's going to get a bit busierYes, close to Pickford Green. Not sure it will affect me, though it will be a shame seeing the fields built upon. O'Flannigans have just built a set of quality houses at the top of the Green.
Robins will attack just about any bird if they think their territory is being invaded. Lovely happy sounding birds but nasty if they feel threatened.Don't be surprised if you get actual Robins attacking those. Very territorial and actually quite vicious when doing it
It will, but as the development will have its own shops etc I expect it will be relatively self-contained, the busyness coming from the proposed entry/exits along pickford green lane and onto the A45 via a new slip road. I suppose what I'm hoping doesn't change too much is the nature of Eastern Green, which has always been a quiet (and relatively crime-free) area.Been looking at house recently and looked at a couple up there but was mindful it's going to get a bit busier
