Thanks Francis.

Last year I was noy able to get a single sparrowhak photo. Probably as they were absent from the park for a long period.

I agree with castlehaven - a great pic. Ive never managed a sparrowhawk photo, let alone one with a kill!

Hi Neil Happy New Year to You.

It is all a matter of luck, this is only my second. This one I took the photo through my binoculars. It would have been to close to take using a telescope, which at the time was not handy. If I had used a scope it would have been a sharper photo.
