A trip up to Gloucestershire today with my mates Ken and Andy turned out to be quite a good day ! our first stop was at Parkend to look for Hawfinch and as soon as we had got out of the car we saw some and in about 10 minutes the total had risen to 21 before they all flew of high , we then went to St Pauls Church where some Common Crossbill have been seen and after a bit of a wait we saw a male and a female , also seen were 2 Eurasian Jay , we were just on our way to our next stop at New Fancy when we saw a few more Hawfinch and I managed to grab this distant shot .
At New Fancy we saw a male and female Northern Goshawk but the weather was dull and freezing so we then headed for the Slimbridge WWT , on arrival numerous Greater White-Fronted Geese flew over our heads , also seen were numerous Bewick`s Swan , a single Pink-Footed Goose and 2 Common Crane but after much looking we did miss one bird the female Ferruginous Duck !
