After leaving Rothbury earlier today we drove to Winters Gibbet on the corner of Harwood Forest. I'm unsure whether or not these birds are present all year round.
There were four or five in this location

Male Crossbill

 Female Crossbill


Across the road from the Crossbills stands a replica of the gibbet where William Winter was hung in 1791 for the murder of Margaret Crozier at nearby Elsdon
