This Sparrowhawk appeared yesterday afternoon and remained on the hedge waiting his opportunity to strike, completely unphased by my presence. Our population of House Sparrows is at an all time high at present and she is determined to reduce it!

At least 5 Wheatears on the beach this morning - easily spotted when on the skyline....

but surpriingly difficult to see when feeding on the pebbles
Linnets have had a good breeding season and are still present in the gorse and feeding youngsters.
A fine male Linnet...forward facing

....and back view.
