|Hawfinch at Marlingford, Norfolk, 14/01/18|
A large, bull-necked Finch with an overall Pinkish-chestnut colour, a huge pale bill and thumb-nail shaped Black bib patch. Grey nape. White wing-bar, especially noticeable in flight, and a bold white tip to the tail.
This was my first observation of witnessing several Hawfinches feeding together, at times they demonstrated excellent acrobatic skills as they reached for berries.
In addition to the Hawfinches, the following was seen/heard, Stock Dove, 150+ Fieldfare, a few Redwings, 1 Goldcrest, Coal Tit (heard), Blue Tit, Jackdaw, Chaffinch, 10+ Greenfinches, and a single Siskin over.
