Hawfinch!

So who turned out the lights?

After I had lunch with his nibs (Turkey Breast! Effectively another Christmas dinner) I met up with Trish. I suggested that we might "twitch" another bird. So off to Bramfield Church....

The bird in question is Hawfinch not exactly a twitch but a scarce bird. Apparently they had been seen 5 minutes before we got there..... There was a nicely perched Nuthatch.

 I thought I'd seen one but...... then we heard one........

So waiting when I spotted a Red Kite! Then finally one perched enough to be sure so we headed back....

Oh the church wasn't open but....

St Andrew's Bramfield


There might be Hawfinches in the Lime Trees.

Another great sighting Pete :) Never ever seen Hawfinch. We entered a hide once at Nagshead to be greeted with the dreaded words "you should have been here a minute ago there was a Hawfinch drinking from the pond" !!

I noticed Clumber Park Notts seems a good site but its a long trek and I only "twitch" locally :)
