Many Fearnan residents who feed birds in their gardens will have seen siskins feeding on peanuts.

You may think you are seeing the same few birds but, in fact, there is a great throughput of individuals. Hazel and I caught over a hundred in our back garden during February, including two controls (birds ringed outside Tayside) for which we await details.

The map shows the movement of one we caught in January last year which had been ringed in Chilworth, Surrey, on the 12th April 2009.

 

About Fearnan Village Association

Fearnan Village Association was formed in 2007 to provide a means through which those who live in the village can come together to discuss and respond to issues of importance to the village, particularly those that will have an impact on our quality of life. We also organise social events, such as the very popular Pudding Night in February, Strawberry TeaZ in July, and other events and coffee mornings throughout the year.
