Sparrowhawk misses out

Another cloudy day, but the Sparrowhawk paid a visit and completed four circuits of the marsh. The bird was unsuccessful in it's hunting attempts as snipe etc dodged out the way alerted by screeching Oyster Catchers. Gulls and Heron's also let the hunter know it's presence was not welcome. The Sparrowhawk today was persistent but unrewarded for it's efforts.

These are great action shots Bob.
You have to feel sorry for him; he only wants a dinner. A tough life being a raptor.
