Last year I posted about the habits of a group of goldfinches that were 
roosting in the fenced off garden section of the derelict Alexander Building in 
Woden (down from the Town Square north towards the Scarborough Building, on the 
left, second derelict building along).

Because the demolition of the building has been at a standstill for 12 months 
the goldfinches have resumed their last winter's pattern: roosting in the 
garden shrubs, ascending higher in the shrubs for a communal twitter before 
dispersing. This morning they were still twittering at 8.45 (because it was 
such a gloomy morning). There were 20-30 of them, very cheery.
