group of 13 flying over

Observation details

*rare; heard flying over from cemeteries, butting SSW as many finches seem to do. After starting a recording I got my bins on these birds flying very high: stocky dark finches in loose group, with some clearly brick red, some clearly overall olive, and none showing white in wing. Type 10 confirmed in recording by Tim Spahr.
