    A rare visitor in our garden. I haven't seen one for a couple of years. This winter is colder than last year's, and it seems our feeding place is attracting more species than during the preceding winters. They are very shy and fly away when I move. So I had to sit and wait for things to happen...

    We have Hawfinches on the feeders daily but not in any numbers since the day we saw 8 at the same time.
