In the garden
Managed an hour in the garden during my lunch break. There was a flock of around 50 Fieldfare flying around Montgomery today, stopping off regularly in the garden. Plenty of Starling, Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, Tits, and even a female Bullfinch made a welcome appearance. Toward the end of the hour, the atmosphere quietened, eerily so for such a cold day where food is vital, a glance of the neighbours Willow tree revealed the answer, a stunning male Sparrowhawk (manual focus as it was taken through two trees followed by a heavy crop).
