Heard the call, then spotted the bird - wow!
Well done for getting a pic!
Mum cam and fed it and I got better pics!
Yes, I think young sparrowhawk
We spotted one in our garden too not so long ago, was surprised to see it around here, beautiful birds.
It's definitely a sparrowhawk.
Explains why I have had very few smaller birds in my garden this summer!
A few years ago a sparrowhawk nearly frightened me to death. It had dive-bombed a pigeon perched on the roof of a single storey extension and the bang as it semi landed on top of the pigeon made me jump out of my skin. It then proceeded to sit on the lawn on top of the upside down pigeon plucking the feathers out. It was still alive and struggling. Horrible but fascinating to watch. Nature red in tooth and claw ......
how wonderful , you have to watch little birds though.... we had one around 4 years ago but it disappeared keep us all updated though
