It’s September and raptors are migrating. Been visiting the bird observatory at Hanko on a regular basis for close encounters with the migrating birds. The location is great for photography with stunted trees and open views and with the right winds the birds come in low before the sea crossing. In the past Sparrowhawks have been counted in good numbers, with more than a thousand on the best days, but in recent years the numbers show a steadily declining trend. Here a young female Sparrowhawk is stooping at some hidden songbird in the dense foliage. Hanko Bird Observatory, Sep 28th, 2021.
