Spotted our visitor on Wed this week, firstly in the pond having a good bath but no pictures. No camera to hand and wrong lens fitted. Having sorted the camera the Sparrowhawk had flown up onto the wooden screening around the bottom od the garden.
Posing nicely to dry its feathers. Just wish I was as steady on one leg as the Sprawk is
Even flapping its wings on one leg.
Think it might have spotted me at the window.
Is it waving with one wing?
And I certainly won't try to swivel my neck 180 degrees
Oh its you again
Some thing caught its attention
And then it was gone, sorry for soo many pics but it was sat there for 20/30 mins. I think its a juvenile and had quite a full crop, perhaps it had a wash in the pond to clean it self after a feed somewhere else.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

A shame it didn't wait for you to get it in the bath but nice of it to pose for so long while drying off.
It was probably staring at you in disbelief that you hadn't provided a towel or talc in the bath suite
