My how the mind plays tricks.

When I looked at the photo of the pair of birds I thought, 'yeah, sparrowhawks' whether it was because that's what they were labelled as or because that's what I reckoned they were I don't know. So I 'saw' a square tail. Maybe it was the narrow tail that did it, I don't know, but clearly it is not as square as I originally perceived it to be.

They still look like Sparrowhawks, but don't ask me why I think that now.
