Yep, they always come as a flock. Sometimes more, often less. Often there is a mixed flock of small birds moving along the hedgerow and for a few minutes the feeders and floor below are covered. They tend to not stay long though due to cats and the occasional sprawk.

A friend often gets 30+ goldfinches on his feeders right in the town centre.

A superb picture Paul. Gotta Love goldfinches. My visitors tend to spread out more, feeding mainly on the floor.

They are very skittish though, if they get a sight of you they are off and don't return for some time, where other birds return almost immediately.
