(via Elaine Blackman) Working in the garden this afternoon, my attention was caught by the frantic twittering of Swallows & House Martins. I looked up in time to see something fly into a Corkscrew Hazel with an almighty thump – when it flew out the other side, it turned out to be a male Sprawk. I had another sighting a little later of a male flying above the garden when there were lots of hirundines – do Sprawks take things like that? I think of them as ambush predators, leaping out from behind hedges & bushes.
