Wonderful, Mark, you can almost hear his song! We call them Geelgors in the Netherlands; not rare, but I live in river and marsh country, that's not the right biotope for it, we are accompanied by Rietgors (reed bunting).
Cheers, I admired the Hawfinch too, and could for that species say the same: not in riverland, unless there are big parks (estates e.g.). Thank you for sharing, stay well, Jan van der Brugge

Mmmm.... that's just how you see them!! Though the trouble is I've not seen any for a couple of years... disappearing from the usual haunts. I did find another place where they're hanging out pre-lockdown and heard some singing, but couldn't see them!!!

A wonderful paining this Mark, another of yours I wouldn't mind hanging on the wall!
