With a house move severly restricting my chances to go birding in December, I only managed to get to Tyttenhanger GPs once to see a scarcity Hawfinch. I connected with 10 of them in the tall trees to the south of the main pit. It was satisfying to see them at a different site to my only previous sighting at Lynford Arboretum in Norfolk in 2008. This bird was a species I was very keen to see in 2008 and connecting with it then was a catalyst to get back into birding after a near 10 year hiatus.
Sunday 14th, Tyttenhanger GPs, Hertfordshire, England, UK.
