Searching the area for some tasty garden birds!
Last winter I had a Sparrowhawk sitting in our apple tree as well. They're so awesome! Then, as it was looking around it took off, right through my closed net.... Ohhhhhhhh, I hate it when birds fly through closed nets (11 Solitary Sandpipers, 1 Spotted Sandpiper and now this Sparrowhawk, haha!).
Afterwards I went to my own ringing site. I hadn't been there for a while. While checking out the netlanes I flushed a Woodock. I could see it very well as it was flying past me. They sure look bigger than the American Woodcock, they probably are. It's getting time that I will catch one! At the ringing site I had some gold/firecrests, most species of tits and some fly-overs of Crossbills and Siskins.
