This week I spend 1 morning and 1 afternoon in my hide. Winter isn't coming yet but I had some nice species. Regular visitors are still there (Blue tit, Great tit, Crested tit, Chaffinch, Robin, Nuthatch, Short-toed treecreeper, Wren, Common Buzzard, ...) and 2 new species. I had the honour to have a male Eurasian Sparrowhawk (Sperwer) at the hide. First he came out of nothing and tried to catch one of the smaller birds at the feeders. He missed and flew away, coming back after 15 seconds to sit on a branch nearby for a short moment. I was able to make a few shots before he flew off again. A Coal tit (Zwarte mees) was also visiting (very short) for the first time. In the morning I saw 3 Roe deer (Ree) walking in the distance. Regarding the Common buzzards (Buizerd), at least 3 different birds were visiting that afternoon. More photos of the Sparrowhawk on my website here.
