There seems to be a small influx of Crossbills going on. After 3 flying over Brevig last week, there were 2 in pines at Northbay this morning and another calling over Creachan this evening. There were 4 Siskins having a bit of a feeding frenzy on elm seed at Creachan plus 2 more at Northbay and 1 at Glen.
