    Congleton – Somerset Close: ♀ blackcap, ♀ siskin and ♀ redpoll. The first time we have had all three. Or the first time we have been looking out of the window at the right time. Does anyone else call the ♀ blackcap the browncap or is it just us?

    In my snow covered Alsager garden this morning I was visited by at least 2 Lesser Redpolls and 3 Siskin.
    Not easy to count as they were amongst 25 Goldfinch and 6 Greenfinch the tit family and other residents.
    Also present were 2 each of Fieldfare and Redwing feeding on a berry bush.

    Female siskin and female blackcap. The siskins are regular, but in low numbers, i.e. one – the blackcap is the first of the year, as we last saw her on the 30th December 2020. She may have been around , of course, without us seeing her.
