Linnet - Found in open habitats with low shrubs and scattered trees, often on moorland and heathland, along woodland edges, hedgerows and orchards, sometimes in large gardens. Feeding mainly on seed it sometimes forms large flocks with other finches such as Twite on coastal areas and salt marshes. Spotted these at Aughris Head County Sligo and some in Praia Da Rocha Portugal.
