The Secret Life of the Sparrowhawk.
A film 10 years in the Making ... I was told it was virtually impossible to do!
The film covers the lives of sparrowhawks throughout the year from November to August when all adult and juvenile sparrowhawks disperse and covers why up to 19 species of songbird choose to nest right next to it.
The closer the songbirds nest to the sparrowhawk the more successful they are in rearing there broods keeping the balance of nature just right.

These are people who helped me along my mammoth journey as an unknown film maker making a film i was told virtually impossible to do 10 years in the making,the film covers the whole lives of the sparrowhawk.
The Secret Life of the Sparrowhawk covers why songbirds choose to nest right next to the sparrowhawk, the sparrowhawk has always been persecuted and very much misunderstood, the sparrowhawk plays a big part in the songbirds lives at times giving them protection to raise up to 3 successful broods nesting right under its feet.
This helps to keep the balance of nature just right!
The DVD will be available from around the 28th October, this is a world first and all of my footage is of wild birds and animals nothing faked by using pet birds or animals.

'Cornwall - The Wild Peninsula' follows the wildlife of Cornwall throughout the seasons of the year. Most visitors to Cornwall spend their time here visiting the fantastic beaches and tourist attractions, the locals know of another Cornwall - the one where an incredible amount of wildlife lives right here, on our doorsteps. This film is a celebration of those wild treasures. Peter McMurdie is a cameraman based in Cornwall and has worked on many BBC wildlife programmes and films, some of which have been presented by Chris Packham, Mike Dilger, and Nick Baker.
Peter taught me filming skills many years ago when i was just starting out in wildlife filming.
Welcome to Sparrowhawk Island
Sparrowhawk Island is a web site dedicated to capturing live footage of many species of British birds, but mainly the Sparrowhawk as it lives in the wild.
Our live streaming web cams are permanently fixed in our wood in Cheshire, England and capture much of the goings on in a Sparrowhawk’s typical daily routine.

"Not your average cam site...."
This isn't your average online web cam site. Our web cams allow us to follow every aspect of the sparrowhawks life, whether its in the nest, feeding time or the male bringing kills in. You will see the female Sparrowhawk leave the nest and take the kill away from the male to feed herself and her chicks.
We also have web cams focused on our mating and courtship branch and of course a secondary web cam trained on our watering hole.
The rest of the cams are situated throughout the wood in all of their favourite hotspots, this means you're guaranteed a good show.
"Make a donation."
The upkeep of our website, 20 web cams (standard and night vision), live streaming service and upkeep of the wildlife habitat is all funded from our own pockets and via donations from kind members of the public, people viewing the Sparrowhawk Island website and local businesses.
100% of everything we earn from any donations goes back into looking after the environmental area and these magnificent birds of prey.
