I’m disappointed to see a continuation of errors in the representation of scientific names, Ken. The scientific name of Eurasian Sparrowhawk is Accipiter nisus (usually italicised, genus with initial capital and species name lower case). I’m sure you must know that. Some readers not familiar with scientific names might mistakenly think that “a Nisus” is an alternative vernacular name for a Sparrowhawk!
