Sparrowhawk thwarted by cage
We all know that Sparrowhawks are regular garden predators but one pet cockatiel got a shock when a Sparrowhawk entered its owner's garden recently.
Peter Butler emailed in to tell us about how a peaceful sunny afternoon was shattered by his neighbour’s cockatiel kicking up a fuss in the next garden. Wondering what was going on, he went to have a look to find a Sparrowhawk hanging upside down from the cockatiel’s cage, attempting to get it out. Peter managed to get a photo on his phone before the Sparrowhawk realised he was there and flew off.
