Hawfinch

Post by Alex Shepherd »

I know it's not Angus but Scone Palace is closer to Dundee than Montrose Basin.

A single Hawfinch was photographed today near the Lime Avenue, it appears to be flying around with a Mistle Thrush!

The Palace grounds are open Friday, Saturday, Sunday from 10am - 4 pm until December 18th, re-opening again February 3rd.

To make up for the poor quality of the Hawfinch photo, a Sparrowhawk from the Lurgies Path
