21st Jan. I do remember a time when I hadn’t seen a Sparrowhawk. One of the first I did see was at Aviemore. I remember I didn’t get a good look at it as it felt as if it almost clipped by face with its wing when it flew past me in a wooded area. I’m pleased to say Sparrowhawks are commonly seen now and I have hardly been out this year without having decent sightings of one.
