a single sprwk is worth 10 GSW any day ;-) (I'm biased off course: my favourite bird. They were so so rare when I started birding. I think I remember my first - Esholt SW. It was soaring. Just couldn't work out what it was - my search image of sprwk was flap, flap glide and hedge hodging. I even thought about Bzzd - hadn't seen that then either. Eventually worked it out.)

Sorry, wandered off topic a bit: btw I've seen several more hobby than sprwk down here in Oxon. Too many chemicals on this 80% agricultural landscape county?

hedge hopping - not hodging!
