Sparrowhawk

I spent a few hours in a hide this morning near a sparrowhawk nest. We'd known about the nest for a while but were waiting for the young to be hatched before trying any photography.

Fortunately the female bird was totally disinterested in me from her lofty nest site and I took some shots from ground level.

This viewpoint was ok for photographing the adult but not easy to show the chicks so I'm hoping to get a higher viewpoint in the coming days (weather permitting!).
