Visited Norton-sub-Hamdon this afternoon to see if the Hawfinch invasion had brought birds there. I only saw one bird at a time in flight but saw it five times and got the impression that more than one bird was involved. I didn’t see it (them?) perched at any time. All sightings around the churchyard area.

Paul Clement and I went back this afternoon to Broomfield having seen only a singleton Hawfinch there yesterday morning. Today we were rewarded with prolonged, good but somewhat distant views, of a small flock of 5 Hawfinch in the tall deciduous trees behind Fyne Court cottages.
