Siskin in the garden

(Entry copied from my WAB blog)


I spent about an hour and a half photographing birds in the garden again this morning. Undoubted star of the show was this siskin, the first I’ve ever seen in my parents’ garden I think (my parents say they sees Siskins occasionally every winter). Otherwise it was just the ‘usual suspects’ – Blue Tits, Great Tits and Chaffinches. A Dunnock landed briefly near me, before realising I was there and flying off. A Robin appeared now and again, and occasionally a blackbird flew low across the garden. There was frequently the delightful sound of jackdaws overhead, and I think I got a glimpse of a yellowhammer again.

In the afternoon, I saw four Long-tailed Tits on the bird feeders.
