Iver Heath Garden - 11 February 2012
At last the Siskins are beginning to arrive in numbers and today was a good opportunity to try and catch a few. I also put out some apples, hoping to entice some Redwing down into the vicinity of the nets. The apples did not bring in thrushes although two Blackcaps coming to a somewhat stunted apple tree in the corner of the garden did mange to find the net, and thankfully the Siskins came and brought along a few of Redpolls too.
