Our young siskin (probably a last year's bird) was back just after mid day today. It appears to be a hen bird - no trace yet of a dark cap or 'beard', but otherwise very nicely marked. Still very much on its own, too (which is a little worrying).  Will keep an eye out for further sightings, although they're usually around for a very few days,  a little later in the year than this.

See my blog entry for Monday, March 14th, for the answer to this riddle. She is now in the company of a young male siskin, I'm glad to say.
