Around Christmas I re-trapped this lovely male Sparrowhawk whist ringing in my garden.

I ringed it as an adult on 7th December 2013 and in May 2014 the ring number was read in a garden by birders who live about a km away from me. Its great to have this kind of data on birds such as this.

Here he is again in the original photo taken on 7th December 2014.

There doesn't seem to be much difference except that in the recent one there seems to be more rufous colouration on the breast.
