Sparrowhawk in the Garden

A sparrowhawk tried twice to snatch one of the birds on the feeders this morning – without success. I managed a shot as it was catching its breath after the failed attempt. From its colouring I can tell it’s a male. I’ve added a picture of a female that caught a starling in the garden earlier in the year for comparison.
