It is amazing what you can see by just looking out of your window. This is the third sparrowhawk kill I have witnessed in my smallish garden in the last couple of years. This time I believe a blackbird was its victim (the plucked feathers are just visible under the leavesof the bush in the background). On another occasion it was a woodpigeon.

We frequently get a sparrowhawk flying through looking for titbits from the bird feeders. Every now and then it rests in one of the trees or bushes.
