Male Sparrowhawk, Milton Road, Cambridge, 30th March 2008, © Rachel Aucott
I took it with a 28-55mil lens on Sunday 30th March through the doors of my conservatory, which tells you how close it was to the house. I live just off Milton Rd, just before you get to Arbury Rd which tells you that I don't live in rural location. I spent 45 minutes watching the sparrowhawk devour the dove before it flew taking the carcass with it and leaving behind a load feathers, the intestines and the craw.

Firecrest, Milton Country Park, 27th March 2008 © Jonothan Heath
David Heath made this delightful find exactly 4 years to the day after his first Firecrest at Milton Country Park. Son Jonothan can be proud of managing to photograph a very elusive and quick-moving bird.
