A surprise visit from a sparrowhawk

A surprise visit from a sparrowhawk

In all the time we have lived where we do, we only recall a single previous visit from a sparrowhawk and that was actually earlier this year (see this post from the summer). So you can imagine that it was something of a surprise when my wife spotted a sparrowhawk sat on the ridge tiles of a neighbours roof opposite our home.

Quick – Grab the camera!

We managed to grab the cameras and fire off a few frames but the results aren’t great – a combination of less than ideal conditions and having to grab the cameras really quickly.

We were right to be quick as he didn’t hang around for long – so although just a fleeting visit from this most elegant of passers by it was well worth it and an unexpected bonus for us.
