We can’t fully guarantee that we’ll see this enigmatic species but we’ll certainly make you aware of various songbirds that make similar calls. Join Nick, Dan and others for a morning of guided Hawfinch hunting in the tranquil limestone woodlands of Silverdale. We plan to do a circular walk from the railway station (after some from-the-train birding!) and also shorter forays from a central meeting place / parking spot. As well as Coccothraustes coccothraustes we hope to see and hear a good range of woodland birds including Green Woodpecker, Marsh Tit, Bullfinch and Goldcrest. Please e-mail Dan via [email protected] with the heading ‘Hawfinches’ if you’d like to take part.
As with all our events this morning is FREE to LDBWS members (so join here Memberships – Lancaster Bird Watching Society for as little as £7 per year) or £10 to non-members.
