Great shots -

An odd angle, but it shows the relative sizes.
Note to local sparrowhawks: look and learn - it can be done!

Look and Learn

I'm hoping for more repeat attacks on the local Magpie population, unfortunately this one was playing dead and got away. Don't know if it has survived as it a a talon though it's neck.
