Delighted to find a female Hawfinch today sat on top of a tree in a boundary hedge of the Sunhill Avenue allotment. I was viewing the bird from Highfield Farm. The finch appeared to drop into the cemetery where there are a number of yew trees. I was unable to relocate the bird in a brief search of the cemetery. Also 171 Fieldfares around Highfield Farm was a good count (only 2 Redwings).
