The Wyre Hawfinches

With the year drawing to a close, a few local sites were covered just to give a final homage to the past year, and what could be better than spending a few hours on a bridge in the Wyre Forest.

The reason for this? A Hawfinch had been seen, and as the species is lacking for the year, the short trip would make a nice distraction from the horrid Television for a few hours. And to cut it short, 2 HAWFINCH were showing while we were there, including this bird which perched up fairly close briefly, look at that brute of a Finch!

Always worth the effort to see, Hawfinch is always a species i regard of highly. To think this bird has the bill strength to break your finger is outstanding!
