The local male Sparrowhawk arrived on the garden fence at around 7.45pm last night and sat there until 8.40pm. It took an interest in a pair of Woodmouse picking up leftovers below the bird feeders, but no action.
We were able to watch it since we have a street light in the lane running along the side the back garden.
I have to confess to being a point and press photographer so I was quite pleased with my effort to get any image after 8.30pm.
I used a 1.5sec shutter which demonstrates just how still the bird was.
