Silent assassin.

It was a real privilege to catch this male Sparrowhawk at Charnwood Lodge this weekend. I took the opportunity to take some photos and then started playing with the cropping. I think the eye photos demonstrate just how well this raptor can keep both his eyes firmly targeted on his victim. The odd brown secondary and bright yellow eye confirm this as a second winter male.
