    First to find their way to the feeders (at least the first I got a picture of LOL) was this female Siskin. Pretty aren't they. A right treat for me as I don't see much of them at home.

    Hello there!

    The last of my pictures from Loch of the Lowes, I had to sign of with a Siskin, didn't I!;) They're so lovely, I couldn't resist showing you another, hope you don't mind. TTTW EDIT: And the male Osprey has returned at long last.

    A different first

    .... and a different feeder. I've never had this mix on a feeder before. This time the Great Tit had been replaced by a Coal Tit... in fact there's two of them in the picture in case you couldn't work out what the blurry one was LOL. Anyone who knows me, will know that I love multi-species...
