Do you realise this thread is more than 11 years old to just come back to support hunting of raptors or as below

Enough is enough said:Have your birds come back
Jan almost certainly won't reply as it's an extremely old thread. However, the reason she got sparrowhawks was even way back then, she was spending (at a bare minimum I'd suggest as people often underestimate their spending) £400 a year on bird food. That is a recipe for sparrowhawks to come to that garden. If people don't want sparrowhawks in their gardens, the best way to reduce the likelihood is to not feed & encourage the other birds! In answer to your question to Jan, of course the birds came back. They will continue to do so if huge amounts of money are spent on feeding them.
