Birds I haven't ringed lately

Whoa! Firecrest!
Firecrest (L) and Goldcrest (R)
Firecrest (left) and Goldcrest (right). They're actually the same size
Whoa! A massive bird of prey!
Er, no, not really. Just a little male Sparrowhawk hatched this year

Sadly, I didn't get to ring either the Firecrest or the Sparrowhawk, though I have done both before so it was only fair that someone else had a turn (grits teeth).
