Hungary #3 – Hawfinches

More photos from my Shetland Wildlife trip to Hungary. Well, I was going to do Pygmy Cormorants today, but I’ve been distracted by Hawfinches. They were a revelation to a British birder accustomed to seeing them bombing over the treetops in East Sussex or Hampshire – numerous, and at times ludicrously confiding, perching out in the open and giving me loads of opportunities to take photos and sketches – I have notebooks rammed with 15 second drawings that will keep me occupied grappling with watercolours in idle moments next winter.

So. Hawfinches today…
