'E's shuffled off 'is mortal coil. He is an ex-sparrow...

Wondered what all the commotion was this morning - didn't take long to find out what was causing it, a cracking male sparrowhawk - doing what they do best...the video is not for the squeamish, you have been warned:

Having a rippin' time! R. Harris
After been mobbed by a blackbird, he finally flew to the fence behind him for a bit of piece and quiet. He was so engrossed in his meal, he didn't even notice me when I practically walked up to him and started snapping away!
Male sparrowhawk: R. Harris
A walk up over my patch this morning produced 3 yellowhammers, 4 whitethroats and a couple of singing skylarks but was otherwise quiet.
