7th January, 2018 Slinfold

After receiving details from Mark M., we visited Slinfold to search for 4 Hawfinches seen by Mark yesterday. After around 40 minutes we located 5 Hawfinches in the tall popular trees some way behind the Red Lion pub, after about 5 minutes they departed flying towards the cricket field. As we walked back towards the cricket field we located 3 Hawfinches in a large tree behind the local shop and these were probably part of the 5 seen earlier, and these gave good views but then they flew off again heading towards the cricket field. We searched for them in that area and behind the church for about 30 minutes but without further success. Many thanks Mark for the information.
