July 31st Siskin with young.

The siskin is a small, lively finch, which is smaller than a greenfinch. It has a distinctly forked tail and a long narrow bill. The male has a streaky yellow-green body and a black crown and bib. There are yellow patches in the wings and tail. It is mainly a resident breeder from southern England to northern Scotland, but is most numerous in Scotland and Wales. Many breeding birds are residents; in winter birds arrive here also from Europe. Sighted early this year at the Goodenbergh Hide, it has not been seen since. Arrived at feeders 30 Birch Wood late July with 3 young.B72A6733B72A6745
