Lazy Afternoon Fox and Sparrowhawk

I was going to include some photos from Rottingdean in this post, but to be honest while I enjoyed a pleasant walk along the beach today there was little really to catch my interest with the camera. Instead these two shots are left over from yesterday. They were taken while I was photographing Bully Boy. I see distant sparrowhawks fairly regularly here, but this one came in low over the garden. It was a nice sighting, and the shots are passable.

The fox in the title is Bully Boy, who is turning into a very lazy garden fox.
