Garden delights

I've not been out birding much this week, so I thought I'd share a couple of photos from the garden. The first is a male Starling (note the blue base to the bill) which I presume is the one that's been nest building in the box. He's spent a lot of time in the Rowan tree singing and "wing flapping" to the female bird, so we could still be okay for youngsters later on.


The second picture is of a male Siskin which has been into the feeders all week with 2 others (another male and a female). We quite often get them in the garden at this time of year as they pass through to more northerly breeding grounds. Another good record for the BTO's Garden Birdwatch Scheme.
