Sparrowhawk!

Sparrowhawk!
The consequences of a sparrowhawk flying over the flash in front of the Inner Marsh Farm hide at Burton Mere Wetlands. The black-tailed godwit are looking alert and ready to go but as usual the lapwing were the first to leave.

There are also a couple of ruff (one in flight) in the shot. The ducks are teal.

Nice Roy, I was at Burton Mere today trying to photograph the kingfishers. I didn't get a photo but I did see them on the first of the meres. There was a fellow there with a bag hide trying to get kingfisher photos but he had his camera pointed to the second mere and missed them too.

Many thanks Steve. Might go there after the kingfishers on Friday after actually managing to photograph one in France. Encouraging to know they're about.
