Description

After making a failed attack on a number of sparrows, this female Eurasian Sparrowhawk sat in front of me. I heard the male, who was circling close by, calling to her. To my amazement the female then threw her back head and called out loudly back to her mate. I was so pleased I managed to capture this rare and very special moment.
