Liskeard: Running total now 23 with the additions of Siskin, Greenfinch, Pied Wagtail and Raven. Thrilled to have had 4 Siskin jostling on the sunflower seed feeders this morning, then later a total of 6 Goldfinch on niger and sunflower feeders. A lone male Greenfinch joined them. Scoped across the valley and saw one of the Ravens on a gate. Its mate nowhere to be seen today, but is usually close by. Regrettably, no further sighting of Monday’s large egret. (Deena Sharp)
