Hawfinches at Parkend /Forest of Dean

Hawfinch with a ring and it says ‘P3’ this can be used to find out when and where it was ringed. If and when I find out I will up date this page.IMG_3547a

…..and here is another shot also with ring (probably the same bird) in the Yew tree.  Hawfinch1

Both taken with Canon 70D with 400mm zoom, 1/320th f 9

Update: From Jerry Lewis who was at Parkend when I photographed this bird.

‘Alan, have just looked up orange P3, I ringed it Nr Cinderford on
08/05/14, as an adult male (hatched 2012 or earlier), ring number
NW76245, this is the first sighting.’
