Cirl bunting



– Locally common in Southern Europe; seen sometimes in the South of England. It is gregarious and often joins groups of other bunting or finch species; it is normally sedentary, but sometimes migrates southward during when winters are harsh. Close to the Yellow bunting, it is more easily shy and wary and perches in higher trees. It occurs in wooded ravines, scattered afforestations, forest edges and clearings, orchards and vineyards. During winter, it can be observed in stubble and harvested fields near high hedges.

Bruant zizi

Il se rencontre en Europe méridionale parfois dans le sud de l’Angleterre. C’est un oiseau grégaire qui se mêle souvent à d’autres espèces de bruants ou de pinsons; il est surtout sédentaire, il lui arrive de migrer vers le sud lors d’hivers rigoureux.Proche du Bruant jaune, il est facilement plus méfiant et se perche volontiers dans les plus hauts arbres.
Il fréquente les ravins boisés, boisements épars, lisières et clairières de forêts, les vergers et les vignobles. Pendant la période hivernale, on peut souvent l’observer dans les chaumes et les champs récoltés à proximité des grandes haies et des arbres.
