We were having an early diner (at around 17.00 hrs) when we suddenly saw all the birds in our garden take off. And at the same time we heard a loud scream which seemed to be the scream of a house sparrow. And then......suddenly there she was, in the middle of our small garden, with a house-sparrow caught in her claws: a Sparrow-Hawk.

She looked around for quite some time untill she finally declared the garden as 'safe' and started to pluck her prey. She was only about 8 - 9 metres away from us, but that didn't seem to bother her. Probably the insect-screen made us a bit invisible to her. We were able to shoot a photo of the Sparrow-hawk, but only through the insect screen. But nevertheless it is quite a nice shot.
