Ghost at the window

Looks like a sparrowhawk has flown into the kitchen window – and judging by the pale white imprint it left behind it looks as if it was swooping in on a kill. Primaries were arched upwards and outwards whilst the main body also left a large white mark. At first glance it might well have been the ghostly silhouette of a pouncing owl, but this seems fairly unlikely with tall walls nearby. More likely the sparrowhawk had swept across the garden with just one thought on its mind… But it must have made quite an impact and I guess it would have been left stunned for a few minutes!
