Birds&More@AT: #Sparrowhawk

Watch those eyes and you are sure to have a bird of prey overhead. In the right weather conditions on a cliff, there is a chance that their flight will seem like a pause in the air. Nevertheless, it is difficult to take a photo of them as they are looking for prey and people nearby disturb their hunt. So they keep a good distance.

Sparrowhawks are much smaller than white-tailed eagles, but are nevertheless amazing and fascinating fliers. That's why I named one of the test benches for highly dynamic small drives after them.
