So there I was, standing outside the conservatory, minding my own business, musing whether to go and Creocote a fence.

Suddenly a Blue Tit flies in front of me, followed by a chasing Sparrowhawk that gets less than 3 feet from me before doing a "handbrake turn" and flying off at 180 degrees.

It was a bit like a cartoon where birds etc. put on the brakes and stop almost immediately. The Sparrowhawk spread its wings and did exactly the same before turning and flying off. Impressive !
