Suspected sparrowhawk in Alvechurch

Alvechurch resident Pauline Martin photographed a magnificent bird of prey in her garden at The Buckleys on April Fool’s Day.

“I spotted it on the lawn, where it had killed another bird, and managed to take a picture through the window – but as soon as I opened the door for a better look, it flew away,” says Pauline.

She thinks the visitor was a sparrowhawk – can any local bird experts enlighten us?
