    Are you sure that they aren't Siskins - plenty of them in Caithness.

    We're lucky to have Yellowhammers visit us in the Spring and stay for Summer - sometimes just a pair, the most I've seen at a time is 6. We're just south of Wick.

    Have seen them in Latheronwheel and Lybster several times and come every year.
