I had read that the best way to see hawfinches in the Forest of Dean was to stay in your car and, as that is the sort of birding I am restricted to at the moment, I saw an opportunity. In fact, I did have to get out of the car at Parkend but did manage to see three hawfinches. However, they were very high up and almost impossible to photograph.
At Cannop Ponds we stopped near a feeder and the best I managed to photo was a marsh tit, a nut hatch and a little grebe on the pond.

Wow, never ever seen a Hawfinch, not even in Scotland…Nice photos, hope your leg clears up soon for you.
Well, I can only just claim to have seen the hawfinches as they were rather a long way away. Thank you for your comments.
