Male Sparrowhawk

Male Sparrowhawk
Walked out from the Wirral yesterday to the islands in the River Dee. I first encountered this male sparrowhawk on the rocks between Little Eye and Middle Eye (which Google Maps calls Little Hilbre Island). He then followed me onto Hilbre - presumably in the hope that I would flush a bird for him to catch for lunch. As far as I'm aware he was still hungry when I left the island.

Nice composition Roy. I haven't been out to the islands for years. I used to use a canoe to get to them when the tide was in..:)

Many thanks. Detail comes from having a co-operative subject landing a few metres away in perfect light.

Many thanks Mike. In my defence all I can say is that long hours observing wildlife lugging 10kg of gear deserves some good luck like this beauty landing right in front of me!
