Sparrowhawk

One of the UK’s most beautiful birds of prey, the sparrowhawk is more often seen as it darts through gardens hunting rather than sat just a few metres in front of you on a nest or attractive perch. The Sparrowhawk visits the woodland hide during the winter and simply comes in to hunt the small birds, This means there is less guarantees that he will show however should he not there are lots of species to photograph during the day.

During the summer, usually from early July, we have a hide up at the nest site as well. This is a truly memorable and unique opportunity for photographers wishing to record the intimate side of the sparrowhawk bringing up its young.

It should be noted that the sparrowhawks are not baited at all and therefore visits cannot be guaranteed. There will however be lots of other species frequenting the hide to photograph whilst you wait for the sparrowhawk.

The Hide

These birds are viewable at the following hides: The Dyke HideThe Woodland Hide
