    Cracker this afternoon.
    Standing in front of living room window with a family whom were in viewing my labrador pups, and a male sparrow hawk dives into bush in front of window! He had hit some wee bird, and actually jumped onto ground and ran round and round bush looking for his prey. Finally nails it, jumps up to top of bush, pecks it to death then takes off with the prize! The people with me were mesmerised!
    Thing is, I live in a built up cul de sac, have often seen the female out the back in more open environment, never ever seen them in the built up street. Was some sight!

    I'm not sure I would know a marsh harrier from a female hen harrier?

    Bumble54, pop yourself down to North Norfolk; somewhere around Brancaster, not guaranteed, but a high likelihood of seeing the MH.
    Lifts the spirits for sure.
