Lesser Redpolls and Siskins on niger feeder.

We have had almost continual visits from Redpolls and Siskins in the last few days. They feed almost exclusively on niger seed provided in a special feeder. Niger is also eaten regularly by Marsh Tits, Tree Sparrows, Chaffinches, Bramblings and even Pheasants who pluck the tiny seeds from the ground beneath the feeder.
