The Sparrows and the Hawk
Tuesday, 25th June 2002, West Yorkshire
There are a number of young fledgling house sparrows amongst the loose flock of adults that generally hang around the shrubbery and adjoining hedge in our back garden.
At lunchtime I hear a squawk and I look up to see a female sparrowhawk making off with a sparrow - whether it's a youngster or adult, I can't tell.
The open water of the recently cleared pond is proving attractive for pond skaters. I count more than 30, mainly smaller young ones gliding on the surface.
