Gen question, Can anyone inform me please. is this a sparrow hawk or Kestril?
Comment by Fred Mason on 24th September 2011 at 22:00
Deferably a Sparrowhawk. A Kestrel is much different. I watched sparrowhawks sweep into my garden and grab the small birds.
Great photo, John.

|Fantastic photo but I hate the idea of them taking the smaller birds !
Comment by Colin Harlow on 25th September 2011 at 11:06
It's a female Sparrowhawk, John H, the male has blue-grey upper parts.
The female Kestrel is a little smaller and has a mainly rusty-brown tail.
