Sparrow hawks eat sparrows. Or any other plump small birds available. And of course right now or indeed most times of the year, the place to find them is at our garden bird feeders. Heigh ho. Survival of the fittest, nature red in tooth and claw etc.
But not least in Tim Jones's amazing photo (left - just click on the photo so you can look it in the eye), they are the most impressive birds. I'd not like to be a sparrow when this one was around. Or in Andrew Graham's garden (centre) or mine (right).
I wonder if it's the same bird?
