South Brent ~ Sparrow Hawk

Over the last few days a male Sparrow hawk has been very much in evidence, hunting around local gardens, yesterday I saw it passing over head on two occassions, each time it had an item of prey clutched in its talons.

The first fly by was rudely interupted by the local breeding pair of Mistle Thrush who made serious attempts to drive it away from the area of  their nest site.
