Siskin – 1980s winter

Carduelis spinus – PILA GWYRDD – Breeding resident, winter visitor and passage migrant

The BTO winter atlas showed that Siskins were present in six 10km squares during the winters of 1981-82, 1982-82 and 1983-84.

The darkest blue colour in a 10km square represents 19-50 birds seen in a day, in Pembrokeshire up to 32 birds.
