Lot to learn
After the Sept 9th visit of a male juvenile Sparrowhawk this one stopped for about 5 mins on the 13th Sept. All taken from the lounge window so no running from room to room this time.
Also I think this is a different bird, possibly a juvenile female Sparrowhawk as the markings are different, very interested to know if anyone else agrees or not.
Then it was time to go.....
In reply to tony:
In my opinion thats a female this time Tony...has the pale eyestripe....lovely pics yet again!
post edit...but then maybe all juveniles have the pale eyestripe lol
Juvenile sparrowhawks are similar to the female but with browner upperparts and wider stripes on the underparts than adults.
Och am always wrong lol
A will just keep to saying lovely pic l
