Hawfinch
Coccothraustes coccothraustes 

Taken at Wimpole Hall, NT in February 2013

Lovely  to see a Hawfinch anytime, first one I’ve seen in Cambridgeshire. Conditions weren’t that easy, shooting at 1600 iso all day and the birds appearances were sporadic  and always in the shade but managed to get a few record shots, plenty of food, seems to like the Yew tree seeds but there were loads of potentially feeding area’s as the park has a fair few around the hall and church as it is quite large estate, a good day out with plenty of birders present so plenty of quiet chat.
