North Downs - 1400hrs Visited a wood on the North Downs this afternoon with Marshman, the Joker and Powerwalker. A pre-roost walk delivered cracking views of a stoat. On arrival at the roost site several Siskins heard `zinging` overhead and 2 Hawfinches located almost immediatley perched atop a spruce. They soon disappeared, but 20 minutes later another 3 Hawfinches (2 cocks, one hen) arrived along with a near perfect cock Brambling and showed in full view for half an hour, followed by much drooling through `scopes. Back at the car we celebrated with tea and blueberry muffins.
