HAWFINCH ON SATURDAY IN MILTON KEYNES
At 10.25 I was heading out of my estate , Shenley Brook End , Milton Keynes, when I noticed a large finch bound over the top of me and land in the scrubby area along Cressey Ave, suspecting it was a goodie, I parked up , got my bins , and there it was , a Female HAWFINCH sat at the top of one of the trees , I immediately drove back round to my house to secure the all important 'from my house list' but after about a minute of view it dropped out of view ! Amazing ! Mirrors the winter record of 5 birds 2 years ago (Simon Nichols, Saturday 28 March).
