Large number of SISKINS in Cassiobury Park

Had a walk around the Nature Reserve section of Cassiobury Park in Watford this morning. I was mainly looking for Redpolls, but only heard 3 or 4 singles and didn't manage to see them as I was in the wooded area when they (presumably) flew over. However, there was an impressive number of SISKIN there. They were being fairly mobile in flocks of varying size, but I guesstimate there to be over 100 maybe as many as 150, some in mixed flocks with Goldfinches.

Other highlights were two Common Kingfisher heard calling to each other on the Fishing lake (no access), 1 male Bullfinch, 1 singing Mistle Thrush, plus the commoner woodland species (tits, Great Spot Woods, Nuthatch) (Bill Haines)
