The bird seems not to be bothered.

I actually put this up for that Great tit without it's legs trying to prevent the bigger birds from taking all the food as soon as I put it out (Working so far). The Siskin turned up just after the storm passed over about 1pm today. No doubt the storm is with you by now.

Makes a great feeder though, you will have half the kitchen in the garden at this rate,
Terrific capture mate, We had the storm during the night I was out retrieving large plant pots at 4.30am (to prevent them doing more damage)

Nice catch, there seem to be quite a few Siskins around this year.

You tend to see Siskins more after wet and stormy weather when these birds are forced into the gardens. They feed on pine cone seeds and in the wet weather the pine cones close up depriving them of this particular source of food.
