Sparrowhawk, I once had one come to the garden last year 

but it flew off before I could take a photo. I took this one through

the window, i didn't want to miss the opportunity this time by

opening the window.

This fella turned up at the same time but he soon went away

when the Sparrowhawk left its perch. I have never seen a

Squirrel move so fast

  • I always think when a sparrowhawk turns up and I see it what a lucky lad I am, doesn't ha[[en very often though lol. Lovely shots

    I was over the moon when I saw it PB. such a lovely looking bird and it stayed long enough to get some photos.
  • Missed this ILR, cracking photos of both, truly a beautiful bird and great to get a photo, one that you don't really want to see on your own garden, I know they have to survive as well but it is horrid to see them swoop, catch and get their prey. Smart looking Squirrel with a full belly!

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  • Thank you Catlady, I was really pleased to get a photo of it. Ref Mr SquirreI don't wonder the squirrel has a fat belly its been digging my garden up all week.
  • Super photos ILR, and the sprawk is so clear.

    Thanks Mike I was lucky to see it, I was walking past the lounge rear window and every time I pass the window I look into the garden to see if there are any birds on the feeders, when I saw it it was quick get the camera and was again lucky to get the camera take a photo, check the picture, it was too dark alter settings take another picture that’s better and take a few more then the squirrel decided to get in on the act. The Sparrowhawk was quite impressive and something to remember.
