Joined JR and Carl for a hawfinch hunt this morning and struck lucky at both Caerhun Church and Llandbedr-y-Cellin. We bumped into Alan and Ruth and party at Caerhun and they had already seen at least 4 hawfinch but we had to wait another 20 minutes before finally nailing 2 on top of a yew tree. Also had great view of a red kite sailing over the church. On to Llandbedr and after a fleeting view of a flyover hawfinch finally got good views of one atop a tree opposite the parking pull-in spot. Plenty of redwings and fieldfares also in the area.
