And about 10 there Friday morning…
At least 20 Hawfinches in and around Holy Trinity church yard Street Thursday morning
A friend in Clayhidon just over in the Devon border reported 2 in her old orchard this morning. Also saw about a dozen birds in flight which she did not recognise in poor light but heavy and undulating flight so could be these.
An incredible 18 Hawfinches in Holy Trinity church yard at 10:45am in flight together, with possibly another 3 more that separated from the group.
At least 6 Hawfinches at Holy Trinity Churchyard, Street, in a 1-hour visit mid-morning.

Still at least one male here every day in West Hatch, sometimes female as well. Easy to see on edge of lawn.
At least 14 Hawfinches at Holy Trinity Churchyard Street on Saturday morning. If you are on the junction of Anthony Road/Church Road, they seem to favour the trees behind the churchyard above the row of houses to the left of the church, as well as the bare trees in the churchyard itself.
