Monday 28th January 2013

Nice to see a couple of the St Margaret's Hawfinches in some decent light this morning - one of the females sat out in the early morning, sunning itself.  A Great Spotted Woodpecker was in the large ash.  I wish the weather had lasted - I rode home in near gale force winds with the rain lashing against my face!

Once again they evaded me this morning Adam! I will keep trying though.

Hi Phil - I can recommend early morning, I calculated I've had an 85% success rate visiting between 08:00-08:30. Check the yew trees as well as I've seen them feeding quietly in those. Keep your eyes peeled for them as they fly in - very distinctive flight, big white wing bars stand out like a sore thumb in flight. Female in photos dropped down twice towards the feeders so fingers crossed. You will see one - eventually! Ad
