Accipiter nisus

Maybe once a year or two a Sparrowhawk visits our garden (or that’s how often we happen to see one).

This one lived up to his name and ate one of our large family of sparrows today. This made us somewhat sad since they are fun and social company. On the other hand it was great to capture this photo, with which I am rather chuffed.
