I have a corner of our garden where the bird feeders and bird table are, and put ground food down for the blackbirds etc, love to watch them.
Sitting there last year and a hawk swooped down and took one (bigger than a sparrow hawk) made me worry for a bit about feeding them, but weighed it up and decided that birds and I enjoy the feeding so carried on.
Last year I was in the kitchen when I heard a thud in the conservatory, went and looked and a sparrow halk was lying stunned on the floor, me screamed for Ed he had a look it was flat out, went to get a tea cloth to pick it up (well you never know) when it recovered and flew up, but I did get a good look at it and was surprised how small it seemed.
