Almost Certainly Male

Rufous cheek and breast make this a male. Also using the fence panels as a guide I would say this is very small bird.

Thanks so much for identifying its as a male, could you maybe identify my other Sparrowhawk for me, you should be able to see it if you put Bassrockcats into search box I would be so grateful.
