west London bird call - never heard it before!
Hi guys. I was walking back from work yesterday in the west London area and I heard a strange bird noise coming from a tall tree. I couldn't see the bird unfortunately, but I was hoping someone could identify it from the call! It sounded like a small frog/cricket, was calling in sets...

Re: lots off finches

Question 2 of 3 - Identify a bird of prey based on no information whatsoever
Dave - CH
My second question for the day... Out recently at a local nature reserve, we were very excited to see - what for us was - a new bird of prey. We're used to seeing many birds of prey close up, but the only thing we're any good at identifying are kites, particularly since red kites hang around...

Sparrowhawk versus Goshawk
I was recently told this bird that appeared in my garden (on top of a dead pigeon!) was a Sparrowhawk rather than a Goshawk. I found it difficult to tell the difference when consulting a guide. How does one tell that this is definitely a Sparrowhawk? Thanks a lot.
