Anemones, Celandines and a Sparrowhawk

the Porter Brook
The anemones and celandines were out on the banks of the Porter Brook during our Sheffield trip. On one of my walks I saw a couple of birds battling on the opposite bank. I sat on a handy seat and watched. It turned out that a sparrowhawk had been chasing a pigeon which hid in the thick ivy round a tree. The sparrowhawk perched and kept an eye on the ivy. The pigeon must have tried to escape at one point because the sparrowhawk dived down again without success.
