Unexpected

Sparrowhawk.
I noticed that the sounds from the garden were somehow different and looked out. This was in a cherry tree. Angles from which to photograph it were severely limited, but ...

Taken at Gillingham, Dorset.

At least you got a shot. The last time I saw a sparrowhawk in the garden was when putting some bird food out earlier this year when one flew past me less than two metres away chasing a blackbird. The blackbird escaped, by the way Smile

Three high quality images, each one a winner. However if I were forced to chose then it would be image three, Superbly posed and poised. Beautiful colour and detail throughout Malcolm.
