Yes, Yes i know, Garden birds again!
But we had this stunning male Lesser Redpoll on our feeders!

Also, we are still getting visits from a smart Female Lesser Redpoll.
However, we have still to note a single Siskin on the Feeders! But there was an increase of them on the patch today, with around 20 seen, also the same number for Redpoll's, and a small flock of 4 Reed Bunting was at the Gadwall lake.

I am in agreeance with Jason 'an absolute stunner'! A splendid video and pics! I am sooooo jealous!
The cold weather and natural food depleting may bring the Siskins in soon Craig.

Thankyou both
Ive seen male Redpoll with more red, but i cant say ive ever seen the glossy red colour of this one, a very good looking bird!
Thankyou pam, when on my feeders i often have alot of time to try to get the video as good as i can, hopefully better to come still!

yes, i was hoping that the cold weather might bring the Siskin back this weekend, February is usually when the flock starts to build anyway :)
