COWAL: Alan Forsyth has been noting 10-15 Siskins in his Innellan garden since they arrived back there in January plus groups of Goldfinch, Chaffinch and Greenfinch (2) and has just noted his first ever Lesser Redpoll there. He notes that no local Jays around this winter but did find a dead one on the Innellan/Toward shoreline a month ago during a beach clean.
