Hawfinch - Cromford

Whilst in Cromford to photograph the Stinking Hellebore (below) I thought I would have a look for the Hawfinches and was very pleased to see seven birds almost immediately, in the tops of distant trees by the entrance to Willesley Castle. Seven is the largest count I have heard of so far this winter.
The birds were coming down occasionally to feed in the Yew trees but the light was very poor, still can't complain, nice views. That is a very large bill for a finch!



  1. Thanks Ian, I understand there were 9 Hawfinch early afternoon Sunday. I used to see them regularly in Darley Dale but no records for about 3 years now I'm afraid.
