Red Crossbills, Albion

10 May 2021 - Just after noon we had a short visit by five Red Crossbills in our garden. One adult male, one adult female, and three juveniles!
Crossbills are known to breed irregularly, triggered more by food availability than seasonality. I wonder if these might have bred locally.

Cheers,
