A2 signed poster print of British finches

There are 11 species of British finches, all of which I have illustrated.  Common ones include the chaffinch, goldfinch, linnet, siskin, redpoll and greenfinch. But less commonly seen are the bullfinch, crossbill, hawfinch, and twite.

Finches the world over often wear very handsome costumes. And it's no different for the species we get here in Britain. Aren't they gorgeous? 

Prints of my British finches paintings are:

  • poster size A2
  • made in UK
  • signed and ready for you to frame
  • comes carefully rolled in a card postal tube, free of nasty plastic packaging

I also have greetings cards of this British finches painting as part of a pack featuring illustrations of British birds.

Finches in the garden

Three of these species - greenfinch, chaffinch, siskin and goldfinch - are regular visitors to our garden, and maybe to yours too. We get scores of goldfinches in the garden at once, and charms of them, perhaps more than 100 birds, fly around the village.

When I was child, I never saw a goldfinch. I longed to see one! But we did get lots of bullfinches. My father would ask me to run down the garden to the plum tree to scare them away when eating the plum blossom in the spring. Now bullfinches are rare. Sadly, I have only seen them in our garden here in Oxfordshire twice.
