Female Sparrowhawk

I'd been intending to blip from the book festival today as we're heading through for some culture. And to meet friends before braving the packed train home.

However, as you see, I shelved that idea when I was watching some fledglings on the bird feeder and noticed I wasn't the only observer. I think it's a female sparrowhawk but am happy to be corrected. She flew off so this photograph was taken from 4 or 5 gardens away with the Sony RX10 on its fullest zoom. It's a great camera but heavy. The last photograph I took of her was just as she flew down from her perch. Presumably to catch an unsuspecting creature.

Off to get ready for the train to Edinburgh now.
