It's not often I get a new garden tick, but today I saw the first redpoll here in the 14 years that I've been here. It was a single, feeding on the spilt nyjer seed. In fact it was on the floor with a female bullfinch, 3 goldfinch, a chaffinch and 2 female siskin! I tried and failed for a photo, but hopefully it might be around for a while.

Just had a report with Redpolls starting to show in Littlemoor Park Queensbury, could be a move on.
