I was watching a Blackbird feeding on our Rowan's pink berries when I thought I saw a chaffinch pop up on to a branch of a nearby tree. Suddenly the "chaffinch" turned into the head of a sparrowhawk which launched itself off through the garden. I missed a golden opportunity for a garden photo.

Our SH flew right passed me this evening. I'd love to get a picture of it like Ian did.

Scores of Scandinavian thrushes over our house this morning . Even AM was impressed.

Then just one RW this evening.
