Fenland prints

One evening a couple of years ago Sue and I watched two Sparrowhawks hunting for their supper along the headland at the edge of a dyke. They seemed to be employing teamwork to try to flush out the small birds and pigeons that were hiding in the edges of the wheat field and in the reeds in the dyke. The speed of the two hawks as one stooped from a hundred feet or so up above the field and the other came carving along the dyke side, almost at ground level, had to be seen to be believed it was quite amazing. Gradually they moved on, hunting further and further away from us as they worked their way from one area to a new area and then they were lost from sight. They weren’t singing but they certainly were working very hard for their supper.
