Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?
It was early evening…I was just starting to open my eyes and get breakfast ready, I’d already catered for the garden birds…I suddenly heard a woosh and the familiar chirp the sparrows use to signal the presence of a sparrowhawk.
This is a regular occurance which I have learnt to accept, I mean, I was just about to boil a couple of eggs and a hawks got a right to eat too….it’s just difficult when it’s my sparrows right in front of my face…it was empty talons this time for old hawky but that is not always the case…
these pics are great! i’m obsessed with all things nature … trees.. flowers… birds and animals in particular and waiting for a new camera that (i hope) will let me zoom in from a distance and capture details … if I can be half as good as you i will be quite smug!

Thanks Margo 🙂 ….fortunately I was only a few yards away from the hawk when I took this…in the wild getting this close to a bird of prey is almost impossible in my experience.
