Amazes me how you manage to find them all Tiger.
Are voles a rarity in your neck of the woods or fairly prolific?

Thanks for the kind comments, I think Voles are prolific in most areas, we have a lot of predators like Owls and Kestrels that eat a lot of them.

Your photo of a Siskin is about the only time I,m likely to see one these days. When we first moved to this house 40 years ago we had flocks of them. Sadly haven,t seen a single one for years.
A long memory is not always a good thing to have.

The swifts around our village this year are greatly reduced which doesn't augur well for future years.

We seem to be having a good year inland with bird numbers, it's the coastal ones that seem to be suffering with poor chick numbers.
