Siskins are back on our feeders. These beautiful and agile finches, about the size of a Blue Tit, only appear here and on most garden bird-feeders after New Year, boosted by winter migrants, but they are a joy to watch. Feeding naturally on Alder and Conifer (especially Sitka Spruce) seeds, they come into gardens when seeds are scarce and especially on wet days, when cones close up, which is therefore the best time to see them in your garden. Conditions: Milder and lighter cloud. Temperature: Max 6 Min 2C.
