This blog follows my travels and bird/wildlife trips, in words (few) and photos (many probably)!

Crap, dull and rain again, theres a surprise!!!! Had a late start and decided to go look to see if the Hawfinches were still showing in the Forest of Dean.
As it happens they were along with a few Greenfinches. We had probably a dozen Hawfinches, but only knew how many when they all flew off. I did manage a couple of shots of one, when it showed briefly this time. Not my best ever shot, but considering how brief the view was, and the conditions, i was quite pleased! While there i had about 15 Common Crossbills fly over towards Parkend Church. Hope i can get another chance before they disappear.
Sadly as the rain got heavier, we saw nothing else of note, I'm afraid.
