Female linnet.
A species on the RSPB red list.
Not as drastic as if it was on the IUCN red list but still a concern.
To be on the RSPB red list the breeding population has had to decline by 50% in the last 25 years.
In the linnets case (& many other farmland species) this has been caused mainly by modern intensive farming methods.
As I live in an area where there is virtually no intensive farming their population here is quite good.
