Sparrowhawk

One of the local sparrowhawks [Accipiter nisus] made another kill in my garden on Thursday.

I managed to get quite close to her this time and fire off some photos. As usual, however, the sparrowhawk had taken its kill (a male blackbird) into a gloomy corner, and I was shooting into the sun, so severe photo enhancements (and cropping) were the order of the day.

Still, at least it wasn't snowing this time.
