Visitor for a bath by judithdeacon

Visitor for a bath

We get all sorts of birds using our fish pond as a bird bath, Robins, various Tits, Starlings, Blackbirds and even the occasional unwelcome Heron, but never in my wildest dreams did I expect to be sitting having coffee to be joined by a Sparrowhawk! He stayed with us for fifteen minutes and was photographed from every angle. My coffee was, of course, stone cold when I finished with my camera. Great morning
Yes it is definitely worth stone cold coffee! It’s also definitely worth a FAV

Absolutely worth the cold coffee. He must have been enjoying himself to have stayed for that long.

Had a heron and some wood pigeons, never a sparrowhawk, how amazing! Lucky you!

Wow that's fantastic and a huge Fav

That truly is an awesome shot and well worth letting your coffee go gold for. We get the occasional visit from a sparrowhawk but always very brief. He/she never stays around long enough for a photo. I’m HUGELY jealous (but I’m extremely happy for you 😊)
