A bit of a surprise on glancing out of the kitchen window to see a Sparrowhawk on the lawn near the building at breakfast time yesterday. It was only just far enough away to be able to photograph it by standing on tip toe and aiming at a very awkward angle through the double glazing.
Now there is one Starling less to scatter the bird seed all over the place.
All that was left after the incident was a pile of feathers:
I assume from the lack of rusty colour on its front that this was a female.
