Honestly this will be my last post on Siskin's.
Birding this week has been limited to what I've seen whilst at/going to/coming back from work. But saying that I've seen some nice birds including Little Egret, displaying Buzzards and Golden Plover. The fields surrounding the industrial estate are looking very tempting for any passing wader and resemble both wetlands and mini scrapes, if you squint, thus far it's only producing wildfowl, plenty of Snipe sightings and gulls. Even counted 5 Goosander behind the brewery on the Nene. The towpath section is coming alive at dawn with Cetti's Warbler and Song Thrush being the most noticeable calls and a Chiff-Chaff.
The only place due to prior engagements for any sit down birding was courtesy of the garden.
It's a hive of activity. Plenty of Tits, Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Wren, Dunnock etc.
In fact I've noted the Dunnock is already paired up and even taking individual seed back to a female and passing food.
Which brings me to the Siskin's.
I placed more feeders out overnight on Saturday night trimmed a few more branches as you do at night :-/
Anyway another Siskin
