On the 27th April:

1977

A return to Leigh Woods to check on the Hawfinch pair, the female was seen flying from the Hawthorn tree, later both birds were seen in the vicinity of the nest, both calling continuously and seemed oblivious to our presence. The male was seen to touch the females bill - part of a display? They then flew to higher branches for 3-4 minutes before flying off.
