The first day of woodland bird photography workshops for 2011 today. And what a day it was despite the grey conditions. The sparrowhawks were regularly coming through making close passes to all hides providing breathtaking entertainment. Simon Davis, in the woodpecker hide, managed to get this shot of male sparrowhawk as it perched on the ground after missing the birds at the feeders ; it was too close to fit in the frame; a nice and rare problem. All in all a good start to the year's workshops.
