Sparrowhawk

The temperature reached a barmy +6C today (although is still below zero at night) and at Bygdøy on south facing slopes there was actually snow free ground at the base of trees – so there is hope!

No new birds have discovered this though as the cold northerly winds will put off any thoughts of migration for a while yet. The sun is still shining though so photo opportunities are good when they arise.

Today I had a young Sparrowhawk at close range which resulted in a few photos worthy of sharing.

the brown plumage shows this bird to be a 2cy (born last year) and from size and structue I would say it was a male
