    This is a male Sparrowhawk which patrols our hedge and just occasionally makes a living from wiping out a small bird. I was trying to photograph our Robin family when every bird on the feeders dived into the hedge, there was an amazing reduction in noise. :biggrin:
    70-200 with 1.4TC at 100% crop. A few adjustments in Lightroom.
