Sparrowhawk - continued

I started to get some shots of it flying in as I learnt to predict its flight path. Most were either not sharp or I didn't manage to get the whole bird in the frame. Slowly however I started to have more success.
This image shows the bird approaching the feeders but too slow - all the small birds have scattered.
We did get a brief fall of snow and although I failed to get anything dramatic I did manage a simple portrait shot.
The final shot in this blog is a composite made in photoshop. It shows a single burst of shots takien at about 11 frames per second as the sparrowhawk came flying through the feeder.
I did manage to get some shots of it chasing its prey and finally one shot of it capturing a coal tit. However that image has gone off to a competition so I won't be posting it here until after the judging has finished!
