Male (?) Sparrowhawk on our garden fence this morning
No interactions present.
Yes, that's a male. An interesting bird to watch and a sign of a healthy food chain.

You may notice the white feathers on the wing. These are not leucistic (see other iSpot observations) they are because a sparrowhawks feathers are white with a dark tip. We usually only see the dark tip but if the bird looses a feather then you can see the white of the one below which it would have covered.
