Like most fanciers I have been plagued by Peregrines / Sparrowhawks for the best part of 20 years. My birds have been shut in since September last year and I started letting them out 15th March this year. The birds have been allowed their freedom for 1 hour a day and whilst out I stand at the loft conscious of a bop attack. During this period I have had one bird killed after a sparrowhawk chased it from the roof of the loft [ a neighbour handed in the leg of the bird with the ring still intact, about a week later ]. Another bird has disappeared during this period?? The last two evenings, while I was stood 8 feet in front of the loft the hen sparrowhawk attacked the birds in front of the loft, completely ignoring me standing only feet away!! They seem to have little fear of humans when they are focused on an attack. My birds are so on edge, that I have decided to shut them in for a while and hopefully the hawk will go to nest during this period ??
