Unseasonable Siskin

On Sunday evening, whilst having tea, I glanced out of the window and noticed this beauty feeding on the sunflower hearts- a male Siskin!


Normally, I see Siskins in the garden in March and April, so it was quite a surprise to see this one at the start of July. To make it even more interesting, it turned out to be a "year tick". The bird was present again this morning, and has been added to this week's count for the BTO's Garden Birdwatch Scheme. Hopefully it'll hang around.

Year List update:
