Anyone know what this bird is? (It's also in the following two pictures from that link). It sat on our fence for a while and when it flew across the garden to the other fence it had a surprisingly large wing span, and looked very bird-of-prey-like. Sorry the picture is so blurry!

(ETA: if you click on the picture you'll get a larger, higher-res version)
I did wonder about that possibility, but it didn't seem to have the "evil" look that sparrowhawks usually have. I wonder if it was a juvenile maybe. The picture you just linked to does look very much like it. Thanks!
I'd say some kind of small falcon, but I don't know if you have falcons where you are! It doesn't look 'hawkish' to me.
LOL - thank you, but it's really just a scratty bit of our back garden. We keep trying to get plants to grow up that fence but they just won't - it's quite a dark corner.
