Big bird visits Eversholt!

SparrowhawkI know now why I have fewer little birds in the garden at the moment - we have a violent neighbour!

While I was getting ready for work this morning I looked out and saw the little fella on the right.  A very nice Sparrowhawk (male I think) sat on the gate watching for his breakfast to arrive.

I have to say he may not be the sharpest bird in the flock.  Do you have flocks of hawks?  Where's Bill Oddie when you need him?!  As sitting watching the birds in the open is not going to invite them to land I don't think.  Any that land are as stupid as a robber stealing from a Police Station and I think Darwin would have an opinion on them!
