I was working on the car yesterday when I heard a lot of tweeting, looked up and saw what I think was a sparrowhawk on the grass opposite with a small bird in it's talons. There were a lot of small birds tweeting and flying around, but keeping well away from the hawk, but a crow dive bombed it a few times before flying off. The hawk was just sitting there ignoring all the kerfuffle, so I edged round the car to try and get indoors to get my camera, but as soon as I got round the car it flew off!
The hawk was mainly grey, and when I looked in my book later I think it must have been a female sparrowhawk. Shame I couldn't get my camera for some of you to help with the identification.
I wondered why the crow was dive bombing the hawk, as the bird it had was obviously not a crow.
