garden full of birds

#1

the garden has been full of birds for quite a while now,
nothing special, just the usual visitors, as listed below
Blackbirds - upto a dozen at a time
Starlings - a small band of 5 or 6
House Sparrows 20/30 of them
Golfinches - varies between 2 or 3 to a large flock
Chaffinches - upto 3
great tits
blue tits
coal tits
long tailed tits (these are now visting two or three times a week :) )
hedge sparrows
wood pigeons
collared doves

but todays highlight was a single Siskin among the Goldfinches on the feeders,
it didn't stay long, but i think it was a female, as it was a bit dull coloured from what i could see of it.

that Siskin made another visit to the sunfloer hearts feeder today, along with a pair of Greenfinches :)
plus all the other usual visitors too,
but they all scattered when the female Sparrow Hawk landed in the tree !
