Sparrowhawk in the Garden.

Nothing new to report today from Penrice and Treskilling Downs.
A few Butterflies were on the wing but nothing new. Penrice was a lot better with a close up shot of the Jay, G.S Woodpecker and the male and female Pheasants. The smaller birds were scarce today with only Great Tits and Robin seen at the feeder.
On the home garden front we had a new visitor...a female Sparrowhawk which I view as a potential hazard to our garden bird population. Today she did not appear to catch anything and sat in the tree just above the fence for 30 seconds so I am told.
