Hawk Revisited

Sparrowhawk - fledged,
but not leaving nest area
Small Skipper on Field Scabious

Had another look at yesterday's location. In sunnier weather there were more species on the wing: Common Blue, Small Skipper, Small Heath, Ringlet & Meadow Brown; but the small butterflies were flighty and difficult to photograph. However, in the early morning sunshine the Marbled Whites and Burnet Moths were still ideal subjects for macro wildlife photographers. Meanwhile, the backyard Sparrowhawk chick continues to grow its feathers, whilst still hanging around the nest. It appears to be the only chick.
