Linnet – 1980s winter

Carduelis cannabina – LLINOS – Breeding resident and passage migrant

The BTO winter atlas showed that Linnets were present in most 10km squares during the winters of 1981-82, 1982-82 and 1983-84.

The darker the colour, the higher the relative total count for each 10km square.  The darkest blue represents over 99 birds.

Linnets can be difficult to find in wintertime because the majority can flock in small areas.
