One of our blackbirds is missing…

I’m not a twitcher, but I think this is a male Goshawk. Might be a Sparrowhawk, but the belly looks whiter and the feathering over the top of the legs indicates Goshawk (twitch, twitch!) 🙂 That’s certainly no longer a fledgling blackbird, anyway…


It found today’s evening meal in our back garden close by the deceptive lure of the bird feeders… There appear to be no ankle rings so this one is a wild bird. Lovely to watch from the bedroom window as it tore into it’s supper, the picture was taken with high ISO and through the glass of the bedroom window so forgive the graininess. When finally I dared slowly open the window for a better look he glared at me for a moment and scarpered!

One response to “One of our blackbirds is missing…”

  1. I think its a goshawk too … shame about its dinner, but we all need to eat.
