Long Distances Siskin

I was talking to a lady in Penywaun, she feeds the birds and it costs her thirty five pounds a week and she has loads of birds coming to her garden. She said just after Christmas she found a dead male Siskin in her garden and it had a ring on it's leg. So she phoned the BTO and it had come from Scotland and it was just under two years old. So think this bird was about six weeks ago and it cannot be the same bird. Who know this maybe Scottish as well. To think you think you are feeding local birds and this traveled all that way. I got Orange Tip today and I was just starting to think they do not exist.


  1. Scots get everywhere!!! Had my first Blues on Monday, I think they were Holly Blues but not 100%.
