I go all the way to the deepest of South Australia and find a European Goldfinch LOL.

Making our way up the Fleurieu Peninsula we stopped off a Mount Compass School Swamp. There's a board walk through it which leads to the school's water monitoring pond.

In a large shrub near the entrance was this Goldfinch, which was nice for me to see as they're a scarce visitor to my garden and I only ever seem to see them in the Autumn here except feeding on thistle seeds.
