Great bird, great sighting Brian, its just a pity that we don't see alot more of these chaps in the countryside, for some reason their numbers remain sluggish even though harmful pesticides where outlawed many years ago and which peregrine and sparrowhawk numbers have increased substantially during such time.
Happy New Year Brian.

Great sighting. Nearly through my garden--that I should be so lucky.
