South Woodford, garden:

  • A female Sparrowhawk hunting low over my garden this morning just before 10am. I was torn between running inside to get my camera or staying outside and getting good views, so no pictures I'm afraid!
  • 5pm - A few moments ago I went out to look at a group of magpies who were hanging around and a Sparrowhawk (presumably the same one from earlier) leapt off the roof of my house and flew over me across the gardens, followed by a magpie. I have just re-arranged the feeders and there are a lot of sparrows around and I guess the hawk has caught on! (PGordon)

Wanstead Flats:

  • Buzzard over (via London birders)
