Chudleigh Siskins

This weekend we have had the eleventh fatality of our Siskins this summer! In spite of diligent washing and disinfecting of feeders and bird baths we have lost 11 Siskins, 1 Goldfinch and 1 Blue Tit. Green Finches and remaining Goldfinches are unscathed. I assume that this is some sort of virus?

I thought that this may be of interest to recorders. 

Is there anything similar occurring elsewhere in Devon?
