Male Sparrowhawk very common where I live. In fact my uncle had to move his bird table as his resident Sparrowhawk was taking advantage of the little hungry birds who were more interested in the seeds and nuts and not the predators watching from the treetops!!
Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus). Seen in wooded habitats, suburban and rural.These birds usually nest in conifers.The sparrowhawk is an excellent hunter, it will hide under cover and then launch out at speed to catch prey (predominantly small birds) in its talons whilst it's in flight. #Birds #UK
