Bramfield Hawfinches

A days birding in Hertfordshire with Ephraim. Our first stop was the village of Bramfield. We arrived in the village and parked up outside the church. Here a large number of other birders had gathered. We soon had a brief flight view of a single Hawfinch. We decided to drive around to the car park near the playing field at the rear of the churchyard. We soon had a sighting of another Hawfinch. Then several more brief sightings of up to three birds at a time. We also walked the hedgerow and lane close to the playing field, here we had two more single Hawfinch sightings. Also 2 Lesser Redpolls showed well. So approximately 6 Hawfinches in the general area of the churchyard.
Then up to Therfield and a long walk along the Icknield Way towards Therfield Heath. Slightly disappointing here, no owls and no Great-grey Shrike. The best we could manage here were; Corn Bunting (20+), Yellowhammer (c50), Red-legged Partridge (c25).
