Finches in the garden

It was another rainy morning in Cornwall so not wanting to waste a day off work I thought I'd try some shots from the conservatory in the direction of my bird feeders.
A greenfinch pair were the first to arrive closely followed by our regular pair of goldfinches.

Then, to my great delight a pair of siskins turned up. I'd only seen a lone male twice at the feeders and then it looked very nervy and only stayed briefly. But today they were a pair of posers and stayed around on the niger seeds and the sunflower hearts for 15 mins or so.
I'll post some more shots at a later stage.
