Sparrowhawk feeding

video


This young sparrowhawk caught a collared dove in our garden, and ate it beneath the bay tree. The magpies were all very interested, and kept darting in to snatch a beakful. It's been a good year for young birds - these peregrines were nesting a couple of miles away. Sorry about the quality of these - I was in a rush to capture the moment.
