A visit to Sywell CP today provided about 30 Siskins and at least a dozen 'redpolls'. The strong wind meant these birds were being tossed around in the small trees and observations were difficult.
About half a dozen Siskins were at both Sunderland Wood and Kelmarsh Hall this afternoon, with small numbers of Lesser Redpolls at the latter.
At Pitsford Res this evening the only different bird on view off the yacht club was a single Redshank, a species which has been very scarce this autumn/winter.
