Following yesterdays encounter with the male I've dug out a few of the images of different Sparrowhawk encounters I've had in the garden......................

The female

The youngster

The apprentice

The big female

The male
I reckon my constant feeding of the garden birds makes my garden a prime target for these raptors but in ten years I've only witnessed a couple of kills and I have a healthy population of Sparrows so the circle of life continues. I did lose a Collared Dove to the 2015 youngster that killed the bird by drowning in the pond.

  1. Great photos. I am very fond of the birds of prey so long as they stay away from out little garden birds :-) Have a good weekend, Diane
