11th December Sparrowhawks and other Garden Birds .......

11 December. A well posed Sparrowhawk that sat in our Ivy clad apple tree for least an hour and a half. Yesterday's Sparrowhawk was a flyover bird, but today this bird was in no hurry to go anywhere.Sparrowhawks are regular visitors to the Garden,but don't usually sit so close or for so long.Pictues taken through glass. An interesting few days in the garden recently.A female Blackcap yedterday and a male today.2 jays and perched Redwings yesterday, with flyover redwings and Grey Heron today. A single Jay in the Garden last week was the first I remember seeing in all the years we have lived here.With at least 1 Goldcrest flitting around today and yesterday I shall keep looking out for that bold white eyestripe !!!!
