They are a constant worry Buster, hope he sticks to the little ones and leaves your pigeons alone 🤞🤞🤞
Do you know what type of Falcon it was mate ??
Touch wood I've not seen Mrs Sparrow Hawk around here for a while, hopefully it stays that way 🤞🤞

Peregrine mate

Ahhhh I think I'd rather have my Sparrow hawk, at least she is only a danger for a few months each year.
All the best.

We have them as well usually hawks one side and falcons other, all in we have at least 20 breeding pairs falcons in and around the local area, no idea on hawks but always plenty about

We have a female Sparrow hawk that regularly passes through the garden, fortunately never really caused any problems with my pigeons even though they are on open loft most of the time. I do find feathers from small birds and occasionally collard doves in the garden. Roxanna says that she has seen her a couple of times this week, both times being chased by crows.
