Here are a few shots of a Sparrowhawk that was soaring alongside a Common Buzzard (see my last post) at Western Turville near Aylesbury.

    • Thank you Simon. I have only ever seen one before and that was about 18 months ago when it landed on the top of a neighbouring house. I’m used to seeing red kites and buzzards which are commonplace but not a Sparrowhawk. In fact when I noticed it I immediately presumed it was a Kestrel because it appeared so much smaller than the Buzzard that was nearby! Hopefully I can get closer next time.
