This sparrowhawk was being mobbed by 3 swallows. This was happening at the same time and in the same area as 3 buzzards were rising on a thermal and a red kite was cruising by. The most raptors I have seen at one time over this farmland. Perhaps the newly mown farmland (covered with hunting gulls) had something to do with it.
