................................ it's not a sparrow?

Took this from my living room window this afternoon. Couldnt believe it when this Sparrow Hawk ( thanks to VinceJ for the ID) decided to use my dilapidated shed roof as its butchers block! It didnt seem at all bothered by my intrusion through the opened window some 40 or so foot away but flew off when I ventured outside to try and get a different angle.

1/400th sec @ f/3.5

Worth a look at the larger size

All comments welcome. Thanks for looking.

Adrian.

Amazing shot Adrian of a female Sparrow Hawk what looks to be eating a Starling. Incredible shot especially through glass. This shows the benefits of clean windows, looks like she as spotted you by the look at that stare

Brilliant!!!

These are not the easiest of creatures to capture. To get one with its prey is particularly good - well done.

Excellent shot, so well captured as he's looking up at you. The one that very infrequently visits my garden never hangs around long enough to let me get the camera ready!!

Definitely not a budgie, or a canary. Great capture - you must have been quick off the mark with the camera before it got away.

Nice one.
