Song Thrush in the park

Hawfinch (by DomenS)

Local patch: this early afternoon a Black-throated Diver was present on the sea, along two Great Crested Grebes.
Instead Miramare park (TS) produced: Common Gull (7x), Sparrowhawk, Dunnock, Song Thrush (1 feeding on the ground in Area North; quite shy), Goldcrest, Coal Tit, Long-tailed Tit, Short-toed Treecreeper, Goldfinch (20 in flock), Greenfinch (heard) and lots of Hawfinches (a flock of about 20 birds, perching together on a high tree).
