A sparrowhawk at the Knowle

A young Sparrowhawk in the Knowle area this week.

Will he and other important birds, bats and badgers lose a major green corridor from the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty around Sidmouth right into the heart of town?

Will EDDC give themselves planning permission to develop 30% of the Knowle parkland and 60% of the formal gardens, felling numerous mature trees and destroying mosaics of important habitats such as dense shrub thickets and open grasslands?

  1. Having seen this picture I now know what it was that we nearly ran over near Bulverton in August. We stopped as he/she was on the road and not inclined to move, there was no kill with it. We got a really good look at it before it flew away so I am certain it was this species and not a kestrel as we had thought.
    Therefore, either this one has its home in the area or there are at least two sparrowhawks about.
