This Sparrowhawk flew into our window today and become somewhat immobile. I soon brought it round. The First Aid course some of us did in December came in very useful although CPR was rather a delicate task!   I had forgotten how sharp their talons are and she held onto my finger until she had a selfie taken with me. She few off later non the worse.






That expression reminds me of some of my friends after a few glasses of wine.



















She has my finger - ouch! The glove was on the wrong hand - silly me.

Well done Bruce, nearly forgotten what you looked like after a glass or two !!! Glad she survived the ordeal though I bet you enjoyed the thrill of survival for the bird. Like the 'selfie' and hope finger ok!

Yes it did cross my mind. The bird was very small.
