Handsome and such an intense look in his eye! Great photo!
I’m hoping he had his eye on the rat!
Oh what a beautiful photo Becky 😀 😀
Thank you so much Cee. Was so pleased when I looked at what I’d captured 🙂
You have a rat problem? Good luck with that. We have that, too. They’re so hard to keep out and a beast to get rid of once inside.
Fortunately not inside. Just wish cat would chase them!!
Hawks are simply magnificent birds!
I so agree 😊
This looks fab!
Thank you 😊
What a great photo.. so nice to find it in the back yard..
Was an amazing moment 🙂
I was going to ask, but see Graham got there first. My guess was sparrowhawk, but without knowing the size it’s difficult to tell. Great photo, and in your garden too?
Thanks 😊 and yes. About 18ft from house. I was inside on sofa!
Awww thanks 😊
We once had a rat problem. They are very very persistent so good luck. Having a neighbour with an air rifle helped in the end. Don’t tell anyone ….Maybe your sparrowhawk can help- what a lovely shot.
I think that’s what he popped by for! If only he’d stay.
Robert keeps thinking about an air rifle, problem is we back onto other gardens 🙄
So did we… He was a crack shot.
PS and thank you. Was very fortunate patio doors were open and that I had camera within reach.
He was just being nosy 🙂 🙂
Very happy for him to be nosy, specially if the rats 🐀 notice!!
It is indeed. A young male.
Thank you 😊 as I was just saying to Graham, thank goodness I had my camera within reach!
And what pray are we looking at. Some kind of hawk or kestrel? Great photo.
Thanks Graham. It’s a juvenile Sparrowhawk, male.
Thanks Becky. Must have been fun to see it.
Was an amazing moment. Thank goodness patio door was open and I had camera within reach!
Did you invite it in?
No I was urging it to deal with our rat problem!!
