Sparrowhawk

Here are a few shots of a stunning Sparrowhawk taken in Aylesbury on a very gloomy day indeed.  I wonder if this could be the same bird that perched in a tree in my garden a couple of months ago taking advantage of the poor little birds at my feeders.  See here:  https://wordpress.com/post/johnmallaney.com/7366

Sparrowhawk

The last shots of the Sparrowhawk that temporarily resided in my garden late last year.  Unfortunately, his cover was finally blown when the last of the leaves disappeared from the tree.  No cover equals no rich pickings!

Sparrowhawk Kill (*Graphic*)

As previously mentioned in my last post when an opportunity arises to document a  predator at work it is very difficult to resist.  The picture on the ground was taken from my window and shows the aftermath of a successful attack on a goldfinch.  The remaining pictures were taken up my garden tree as the Sparrowhawk does what comes naturally.  Some may find the pictures upsetting but this is just another of many examples of the circle of life.

The Red Arrows

Here are a few shots (amongst many) of the prolific Red Arrows taken at the Shuttleworth air show on Sunday, 8 May 16.  This was the Red Arrows first performance of the season and was obviously the highlight of the day.
