A Siskin popped in briefly to the feeders this morning which is the first this winter. We’re only about 400 metres away from the track down to Rye Farm where Siskins have been seen feeding in the Alders, by the pond. A Goldcrest was also singing down the bottom of the garden, first of the year as well while a female Blackcap is now a daily visitor.
