I now have a hide set up on a plucking post and the sparrowhawk visiting our garden at the moment is using it reasonably regularly. In the image below you can see a couple of plucking areas and of course my hide in the background.
It's a very small canvas hide tucked in under a willow tree - not much room for the photographer. However the sparrowhawk has accepted it and as long as I am very careful about moving the camera he will continue to feed only a few feet in front of me. I feel very privileged to be allowed in to his world.
I have posted another image as April's 'Picture of the Month'.
