Siskins can usually be seen and photographed near conifers and, particularly in winter, on alder trees.  They are resident birds in Britain and not difficult to photograph if they settle on a nearby branch. The males make a very colourful image, particularly when perched with leaves or flowers.  The plumage of the females is less striking, but still attractive in a photo.
