Had Ians company this morning . The Wetland area provided most of the interest with a flock of 30 plus siskin feeding in the surrounding alders along with a few goldfinch and a couple of chaffinch. Two bullfinch here were the first of several more contact with this colourful finch. The mild weather tempted some bird song including robin (7), wren (2), dunnock (1) and song thrush (1).
