Siskins!

They're back. First thing this morning there was one male on the sunflower seeds, by lunch time he had two female friends and now there's a small mixed flock joining in with the other finches which today includes a brambling. A couple of weeks ago, after the RSPB bird count, we went out and bought a cheap red peanut feeder, perhaps that's what brought them back or maybe it's just coincidence.
