What could have flown overhead, across the road in front of me whilst I was driving in the Yorkshire Dales, it was fast and looked like a sideways on W. Any takers?
Er......how big was it?
Peregrine look like that in a dive a W on its side.
A bird, sorry but could be anything
then click on "More images for bird with a silhouette"
Not very big.
I knew it was a silly question, sorry to bother everyone ... and thanks for answering. Jeremy, I'll look at your link.
Hi Jim, I don't think it was big enough, and it wasn't diving but flying. Hey ho, thanks for answering
NO question is ever silly, and no one is ever bothered, I have asked some really stupid ones in my time believe me
Hi Jill, sorry I can't help but I just wanted to back Jeremy up. There really is no such thing as a silly question, so please dont be put off and keep asking away!
Thanks for your kind encouragement. I did wonder if it might be a Merlin, but think I was too far North?
Not too far north for merlin, but if a raptor, far more likely to be a sparrowhawk.
