Yesterday, it went very quiet. "Empty feeders" I thought. When I looked out of the window, this is what I saw.
A young sparrowhawk (Accipter nisus) looking for some breakfast. As the name suggests, this is a small hawk that predates on small birds such as sparrows and dunnocks, particularly those that hang around bird tables. A sparrowhawk will swoop in whilst the smaller bird is preoccupied and not paying attention.
For me, as a birdwatcher, this is a very nice addition to our local population, although I suppose the sparrows may disagree.
