Sparrowhawk Returns

August 27, 2017 at 7:14 pm

After a gap of almost a year a Sparrowhawk has returned to hunt our feeding birds. It makes a pleasing picture at the back of the garden and  this photo must be one of the best photos I have ever taken from the bedroom window! This year there has been a sudden decline in local Sparrowhawks and for the first time in more than thirty years I have not proved breeding in Hopwood woods or Golf-course. Click here
There are now the first signs of the return of Autumn with 245 Lapwings already present on the roof of the local industrial estate.
