In reply to Alan.:
I've never seen one before, except maybe a flash.
I'm new to this Web site. Do you think anyone else would like to see my clip? If I leave in my gallery and just label will others find it?

Leave it there Arc because I've put the link in that reply I gave you.
I had a male this morning
Thanks Alan, Do they return regularly or would that be a one off? I've not seen it since.
If you have feeders up and it knows you get birds there they will sometimes call a few times a day.
A couple, which attracts sometimes up to 30 sparrows, but the garden is a fairly well encl area. There may be easier sparrowhawk visiting locations elsewhere around Cardiff though.
