Sparrowhawk display

Moon Sparrowhawk2 A Sparrowhawk flew high in the sky over town, passing just in front of the moon.  I was too slow getting my camera out, in a brief moment, the Sparrowhawk flew distant and disappeared from view behind a building. Sparrowhawks, both males and, more prominently females, announce their territory ownership by flying high in the early months of the year. As they usually display a more skulking behaviour, this is a good time of the year to spot them.
