This female sparrow hawk was on the deck watching the empty wild bird feeder, luckily it was empty and i had nt filled it up yet, It was 7.30 a m and i had nt filled it, this was taken through the kitchen window while i was making coffee.
This was 5 minutes later having found some shoes and gone outside!!!
Jakey on his own! he has a limp, easy to recognise, the other drakes don’t challenge him, he is a big guy and very non aggressive.
This is the new visiting couple, they are afraid of me, not easy to get close.
I printed this lovely image really big, pleased with it! The wishing tree at Martinsell, wonderful up there.
