Kev You should see if someone can take you out more often.

Good One John, like to see your others. H.
Well said Jack T, and Kev, it's a concrete post and not a piller.
Great photo John...lovely.
Well done John ,spot on .
Good focus on the eye, good shot
Superb Sprawk! VERY well done!
Gen question, Can anyone inform me please. is this a sparrow hawk or Kestril?
Deferably a Sparrowhawk. A Kestrel is much different. I watched sparrowhawks sweep into my garden and grab the small birds.
Great photo, John.
|Fantastic photo but I hate the idea of them taking the smaller birds !
It's a female Sparrowhawk, John H, the male has blue-grey upper parts.
The female Kestrel is a little smaller and has a mainly rusty-brown tail.
Thanks for your replies, I really appreciate your help. I love wild life, & all animals. Obviously I love photographs like this. Nice to know what they are. Special thanks to Colin Harlow, its not the first time you have helped me out.
