Sparrowhawk v Kingfisher

Postby Aceyone » Wed Oct 08, 2014 3:00 pm

While I was trying to get a half-decent pic of a Kingfisher in poor light,the following drama unfolded

Kingfisher seeking supper

sudden commotion from the resident Moorhens and this Sparrowhawk swooped down to try and take the Kingfisher

in this pic the Hawk is coming out from behind the dead tree,top right

finally a happy ending-the Kingfisher escaped

incredibly ,half an hour later the Kingfisher returned to the same perch and once again the Sparrowhawk went for it again,with the same result

thanks for looking

They are both rare birds...due to mankind, Not Natures ways.... :(
