Hawfinch

IMG_4765s1
Another shot of one of our local speciality species, the Hawfinch. You can often find them in deciduous mature woodland with large trees, they prefer Cherry, Beech and Hornbeam. They are difficult to see, as they are shy and very well hidden in the undergrowth, if you approach with great care, you may see them feeding, but the least movement will disturb them, and off they go. You can see Hawfinches all year round; usually more easily seen outside the breeding season when trees are leafless and they feed more regularly on the ground.
