I just happened to look out of one of the upstairs windows to see a male Sparrowhawk chasing the birds on the feeders. All the birds scattered, with a few birds going into a bush to hide, but the Sprawk kept zipping round the bush hoping to scare them out, and after each circuit he would land on a post. I crept downstairs, grabbed my camera and slowly raised it to the window – hoping he would still be there. Thankfully he was and I fired off these shots, I was torn between watching the action and taking photos!
Quite pleased with the shots considering they were taken on 1/40th of a second and through a window. Eventually his persistance paid off as what looked like an unfortunate Tree Sparrow (nooooo!!!) ended up in his talons.
