Had a Sparrowhawk in the garden today, doing what Sparrowhawks do, taking and eating a Starling, was pretty exciting/ gruesome, nature in the raw, I think its a first year male but happy to be corrected! A fuller report and a lot of pictures on the blog.
Some of the pictures are a bit gory, nature red in beak and talon so to speak, so if you are having your tea or a bit sensitive to such things don't click the link, although as this is a Bird of Prey section of a birding forum hopefully no one will be too upset!!

Update on this, peeps on Facebook think it's a female based on size and build! Though I thought should have a supercilium? But i guess indviduals can vary and i did think it was a bit bulky for a male!
