Any Hawfinch at Cromford?

Have there been any Hawfinch sightings recorded at Cromford this year? I can't seem to find any on other forums.

Just bumping this up for 2020.

Have the Hawfinches now disappeared entirely from around here?

We tried a week ago and dipped but another guy there said they are still around. To be honest,we’ve failed there most times over the years and prefer to go elsewhere eg Conwy valley.

Thaks Cheshirebirder, that is very helpful. Conwy Valley is a bit of a hike from West Yorkshire - maybe try Fountains Abbey.

Clumber Park in Notts I believe is a good spot for Hawfinch and a bit closer to West Yorkshire

Thanks, that could be a more practical alternative.
