    Sparrow hawks are exciting, seen the female twice lately, both times swooping down from a tree behind the hedges that run along the railway line. And the male once which is rare for me. Swifts fly...

    Maybe a sparrow hawk dived on it and made it jink a bit too sharp and was not aware it had fouled itself up in a tree. They tend to swoop and miss and just fly on.
