I've just been sent a photo of a Sparrow/Goshawk by my mum, to ID, and
I can't remember the differentiating features. It's feeding on the
ground, and size is difficult to tell, nor can I see the tail notches.
The legs look long and skinny, and not at all trousered. The brow
doesn't look very solid either, but it's not a superb photo. Any
ideas? I'll try to get some higher res images, and figure out a way to
post them.
