Predation

Hello to everyone, this is the first time I have posted here although I have been a member for a few years. I do have a problem in my small garden with a sparrowhawk that is making a meal of blue tits especially, but sparrows, goldfinches greenfinches a robin have all been added to the menu when they come to the feeders. My Garden is almost surrounded by a neighbours leylandii trees and I have seen the sparrowhawk lurking in the trees waiting for the next victim. Of course now hardly any birds come to the feeders. I am wondering if I aught not to put out feeders for a while to discourage birds from coming into the garden and then hopefully make the sparrowhawk look elsewhere for his meals. If there are any suggestions on the best course to take they would be most welcomee
