Greenfinches on the feeder

Local patch: today I was really glad to find two female Greenfinches sitting on the tube-feeder and munching the sunflower seeds. If I remember well it's just the second time I see a Greenfinch up on my beloved feeder. They tend to be quite shy birds, but when they show up, they are very aggressive against other birds. While sitting on the feeder (above), the two females didn't allow any Great Tits to come closer. When they left it was feeding frenzy again with up to 15 Great, 3 Blue and 1 Coal Tit.
