Overtaken by Siskins

The last couple of weeks we seem to be getting a HUGE amount of siskins in the garden, we live against a small woodland and you can hear them all in the trees - it's amazing and like a wall of bird song.... but... they are decimating the bird feeders, food that would have taken 1-2 weeks for the normal visitors to go through is being stripped in a day and though they are not actually bullying the other birds we are definitely seeing less while the feeders we being so overwhelmed. Any idea how long this might last, they are very sweet little birds but from a supply pov this is not sustainable, and from a wildlife pov I'd like to see some of my regulars back!
