A flock of Siskins

P1250541Going along with this wacky winter has been the changes in our bird population. Its been mostly the sparrows so far and a few tits. But in the last few days, we’ve got new arrivals.

I’ve never seen a flock of Siskins before, and here they are. They sit shouting in the bushes and are tucking into the hemp seed and peanuts – which I’ve taken to putting a few loose on the table.

The sparrow numbers are down but they are sharing!

The Longtailed tits have popped in and the usual mixture of Great, Marsh, Blue and Crested tits are mucking in. The Field fares seem to have moved on too. What next a flock of Wrynecks??????P1250560
