Sparrowhawk

I get regular visits by Sparrowhawks at my feeding stations every winter, but this year has been exceptional so far. There are so many visits that I wonder if it is more than one individual. It does not catch the small birds it is after very often and does not always land, but has a favourite perch when it does. I have plenty of pictures already and wonder what I should try next. I have provided dead mice and day old chicks on the branch, but it does not even look at them, let alone eat them.
