Just had four HAWFINCHES from my house (Bloomsbury Close, Woburn). They were in an ash tree behind one of my neighbours houses, in an avenue of trees which forms part of Wayn Close (the avenue of trees running from Woburn Park towards the old Maryland College). Wendy and I watched them for about 5 minutes before they flew east along Wayn Close towards the park. They went out of sight quickly so I couldn't tell how far away they went.

My 100th species from my house/garden.
