This was happening on my yard but I had to take the picture quickly through double glazing so I have added some noise to take the reflection glare out. The large image is much cleaner than this reduced one.

I think it is a sparrowhawk but would welcome any bird lovers to confirm or correct this.

Yes, it's a female sparrow hawk. They only eat the Breast too, its the richest meat full of blood and iron...👍

yup as said a female sparrowhawk, doing what she does best. unfortunate for the sky rat but is natural.

I'll bow to the more knowledgable guys above but can only say this is great
While you admit to it being a quick grab shot it's got everything going for it in my view
Would be nice to see the face and beak but faced with this you 'get it while you can'and you did just that
Life as it is on the edge, a really great shot
