Sparrowhawk Again !

The Sparrowhawk has taken a liking to my garden and visited twice today. Steven my seagull gave a loud screech this afternoon and I thought the Sparrowhawk had got him. However when I looked out the window the hawk was walking under the bushes looking for Sparrows. I think Steven is too big for him and he is pretty strong with a vicious beak, so I
don't think the hawk will tackle him. The Hawk has the advantage of a neighbours trees, can sit almost undetected and swoop down at will. According to my bird book, the hawk appears to be a young male.

Yeah they are lovely looking birds. Unfortunately this one has driven away all the small birds that normally feed in my garden, haven't seen any for a week now !
