Sparrow hawk

 On the last day of the last cricket test match my wife shouted from the dining room "come here, quick".  Leaving the tv I went to her and saw that she was pointing to something outside the window and grabbed my camera which was close by.     It seems that the bird had crashed into the window rather heavily and was perched on a wall close to the window.    It was obviously disorientated and confused.      I managed eight pics(one was blurred) leaving me these seven.

My wife has endured over five months in hospital and has survived two major operations and a massive heart attack - happily she is now back at home but facing a long period of recuperation.    One brave, courageous lady.    Hopefully I can now resume blogging but keeping a watchful eye on her.   She has had a long interest in bats and is now pursuing that interest with our one hundred plus colony.
