Twite (Carduelis flavirostris). Words and picture by Matt Sewell.
Or Pennine Finch, a local bird for local people. Nothing much to look at: a faded Linnet or rejected Redpoll. A plain northern bird that is definitely a finch in cuteness and stature, but does her own thing and sings her own song, a song so personal she is named after it. There is more to the Twite than meets the eye.
