Apart from breeding birds of prey, he has also bred German Shorthaired Pointers and this is where we got our dog from several years ago and...

Re: Sparrowhawk takes down Jackdaw.

Great, anything that reduces the numbers of corvids is always welcome. We have a sparrow hawk that chases, and sometimes catches, the kingfishers on our river.
