Sparrowhawk Sighting

I was fortunate enough to see a sparrowhawk landing at our feeders ten minutes ago. A magnificent bird; I couldn't tell if it was a male - which is smaller - or a female. Its legs were almost yellow, its eyes a piercing tangerine. Wonderful.

It left, empty-handed so to speak, after about fifteen seconds. They don't hang about!
