Over the canal yesterday near the marina in Todmorden a big brown female Sparrowhawk inches behind a Song Thrush which got away. It flew high, low, jinking and finally dived through some trees. It could have been a young redwing that hadn't aquired its red flashes I suppose, but we did see a Song Thrush shortly after.
A Pied Wagtail made us realise we don't see as many of them as Greys, unless we come across a communal roost, which we haven't this winter.
