Sparrowhawk!

As promised a few months ago, these are pictures of the Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) which patrols our garden chasing the sparrows. I finally spotted it again today on my neighbours aviary (full of budgerigars (Melopsittacus undulatus)), so I quickly ran for the camera (already on tripod), fired a few shots, and then realised I needed to change to a zoom lens. So quickly replaced with a 300mm zoom lens and took a few more, before it flew off.

300mm zoom lens is the largest I have (it’s not image stabilized either)
