You can never really plan a Sparrowhawk shot ,unless its captive or you are at a nest site they are normally unexpected encounters.I had several encounters with this individual (a juvenile i thought??) that ended up wih her/him perched about 15 meters away from me ,but typically in a tangle of branches! Such a thrill to just see these birds let alone get anything on the sensor!
