Sparrowhawk behaviour

whilst out doing a lapwing count at a site near my house, i saw a sparrowhawk do something i havn't seen before. it was quartering the feild, just like a harrier or owl. it flushed two lapwing then breifly chased them, then carried on quartering. Maybe shes figured out that she can catch birds that she gets to flush?

Has anyone seen this before??
