First time I have been so close to a siskin. I was walking on the bank of the River Tone watching long tail tits, blue tits, great tits etc and listening to a pair of greater spotted woodpeckers which annoyed me by staying hidden. I eventually found them on my way home and watched them for some time.

This siskins were in company of redpolls which are not a bird I have knowingly seen.

My 70-200 lens is only useful for birds if I can get really close which meant the woodpeckers were out of reach for any useful photography.
