Been out all morning with Trevhas up Mam Tor for the sunrise. Got some great shots.

I'm always on the lookout too for birds of prey while im out and about but never manage to see any close enough to capture on camera....until I got home and this Sparrowhawk was helping itself to one of the local pigeons. Managed to get close, only about 8 foot away and it didn't seem bothered.
