Hawfinches at Wrentham cemetery

On Saturday 27th January, An early morning trip to Wrentham cemetery, initially I walked around and saw nothing. Then I heard Paul & Jane F and Jane pointing out a distant Hawfinch to Paul. Sure enough there were 2 Hawfinches, then 3 in the tall trees at the back. Then all 3 flew off to the right. Later 4 Hawfinches flew in and then 3 disappeared and 1 Hawfinch flew over the cemetery and perched in a tree the other side of the road. Later on they flew back to the tall trees at the back and by using the Yew trees I sneaked up and got some mid distant shots. Later on 1 Hawfinch flew to a bush (which meant there were 5 Hawfinches in total) near us albeit in poor light as the early morning sun had by now long since faded. In the afternoon in there rain I decided to do the RSPB Garden Birdwatch as soon as I saw 2 fabulous Bullfinch, a male and female on the Cherry tree, 3 Goldfinch were also seen here and 2 Jackdaw on the fatal feeders were the stars of this afternoon 1 hour garden birdwatch but some common species absent! (Greenfinch, Blackbird, Dunnock, Robin!)
