Excellent photos Brian. Annie and I were watching some at Walshaw plantation this afternoon, after hearing about them on the grapevine.

There were hundrerds of Bramblings and at least one Siskin with them (probably more.)

Thanks,that's great you saw some at Walshaw,noticed 12 or so Redpolls today in Tod.Wonder if its a sign we are going to get a harsh Winter this time,there's certainly been a big influx of Birds from Northern Europe so far !
