Siskins return

A nice surprise this weekend.

On Friday my wife spotted a Siskin on the feeders, just the one so I didn't think much of it, but then Saturday we had anything between 4 and 10 on the feeders at any one time.

We haven't had Siskins for about 2 years now in these numbers and I hope they stick around for a few days more.

Here are the first couple of shots I got:



The other birds seen where Robin, Great & Blue Tit, Chaffinch, Dunnock and Goldfinch shown below:



Blue Tits are always great for a nice pic:



I will be so glad when we get a bit of decent light, as you can tell from these shots its still pretty dull at the moment.

I have also booked a break to the Carngorms which I can't wait for as I am determined to see and photograph a Crested Tit.

Hope you like the pics.

Mike.

  5. Nice series from the garden Mike. We have one female Siskin visiting sporadically but not close enough for such a clear shot as yours.
