03/04/2024 at Glasbury garden

Garden is like living inside a noisy aviary at present. A single siskin all winter has built in the last month to 80-100 (The most since 2010 and 2012). Currently 30 on the patio feeding station alone. Hardly room for the dozen or so Goldfinch and 4 Greenfinch which seem to accompany them. First Blackcap singing a week ago has grown to 3 spread throughout the garden. A lot of overhead Red Kite whistling - perhaps attracted by the siskin noise. One seen carrying twigs.
