Garden Ticks

The ever increasing Goldfinch flock (30+) brought two new garden ticks with it this week. First a lone Siskin and today two Lesser Redpolls. A real shame that the light was so bad but at least the event was recorded. The Nuthatch has remained and visits the feeders most days. Coal Tits are breeding residents hereabouts but following reports on SOS I have been monitoring for a "Continental" Periparus ater ater, the ones seen in the garden are both Periparus ater brittanicus - we live in hope.

A frame grabbed from what might have been a decent video had I turned on the mic

 Just for good measure here is a Periparus ater hibernicus
