The brambling (Fringilla montifringilla) name is probably derived from Common West Germanic brâma, meaning bramble or a thorny bush – it is often seen in that location. A small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae, it has also been called the cock o' the north and the mountain finch. In winter, males have a mottled grey-brown head, which turns jet black during the summer. Females are a similar colour all year round to the winter male. It is widespread and migratory, often seen in very large flocks. Flocks of brambling head to the UK each year, escaping the Scandinavian snow and taking advantage of the food on offer in the UK's woods.
