    Redpoll, Acanthis flammea

  • Description

    The call of the redpoll recorded at Camberley, Surrey. Despite its name, this species of finch possesses a mainly speckled brown plumage and white underparts, with only a smudge of red on the crown. The redpoll is an occasional winter visitor most commonly seen along the east coast of Britain, although it will explore inland woods in search of seeds and insects. It can be identified by its trilling ‘tji tji tji’ call.
