Hawfinches, and robin on a tombstone

Today, to the cemetery.

Near the entrance, a hawfinch.

This is a hawfinch video.

Minutes later, the same, or another, hawfinch on the top of a coniferous tree.

Seeing these birds here now, in mid June, not in winter or early spring like I saw them before, means that very probably hawfinches nest in the cemetery, They keep calling. Many birds are noisy when the young generation has just fledged. Hawfinches are usually quiet shy birds.Their noise here now may point that there was a successful nest.

The cemetery is close to the western border of where hawfinches nest in the Netherlands.

I hear great spotted woodpecker, chaffinch, blackbird, nuthatch.

A robin on a tombstone.
