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…

  1. The last photo was the one on SW that I thought was stonking – it was and is superb. Takes me back….

    The Hawfinch in Hungary appears to have a totally different character to those that are in the UK!

    The idea you might be doing some serious art in the winter is exciting….
