SISKIN

Bird Watching (UK) - - 30 Years Of Birdwatching -

The ac­ro­batic and charis­matic Siskin started ex­pand­ing its num­bers and range south from its pre­vi­ous Cale­do­nian for­est strongholds in the 1950s, but in the last 30 years this has gath­ered pace, prob­a­bly as ma­jor conifer plan­ta­tions fur­ther south in the UK have ma­tured and grown. The pop­u­la­tion is up from 300,000 breed­ing pairs (1988-1991) to 369,000.
