What a lovely fellow! ( the Redpoll Iain 😂)

The recent gales brought a load of redpolls and siskins into this area.
We’ve even had them in the garden this last week or so ....for the first time in 30years! 

They actually used to nest in our garden back in the 80s along with spotted flycatchers and even linnets. 
Unfortunately the allotments on the other side of our fence were all built on and as you can imagine the small birds disappeared.

You have captured your male in a lovely woodland setting. Excellent.

Unfortunately they only came to us for the feeders this time. 😞

I love their black legs!
