There is a flock of at least 31 Siskin feeding in Alder trees around the small pond at Toad Holes Beck. Their numbers are increasing as I counted just 16 on the 21/1. Given the mild weather and a bit of sunshine this morning a number of males were in full song.

There must be a good crop of Alder seeds this year and this bounty may attract some Lesser Redpolls in the coming days and weeks.
