I saw a Sparrowhawk this morning on the way to the bus stop.
I could hardly NOT see it, as it flew at eye level, no more than a foot in front of my face. Once passed me, it skimmed over a hedge and disappeared. That’s the second time I’ve seen one on Rosebank Road.
I enjoyed the irony of the potential headlines “RSPB member killed by Sparrowhawk” which could have happened, should it have hit me in the face.
