My dad called me away from my homework today to tell me that the male sparrowhawk was sat on the neighbours privet hedge, and it was sticking its long legs down into the bush to try and capture a sparrow. It then left the hedge and dived under out hedge/fence in out garden, where we could not see it, but when it flew away there was nothing in its claws, so we assume that it caught nothing. Either way, its great to see such a nice bird in the garden so regularly.

We dont get them very often, but they are always nice to see when they do turn up. Today we had a flock of about 10 fieldfares in a tree next to the house. At first we were unsure what they were, but I went and managed to get right below their tree to confirm that they were fieldfares. I was able to watch them for some time, as they even descended into an adjacent field to forage, before returning to the trees before taking flight.
