This morning I was summoned to see a bird - a female sparrowhawk as it turned out.
Everyone missed the pounce but some were alerted by hearing a woodpigeon smash into a window and when they looked out the hawk was dismembering it. Too heavy to fly off with, it plucked and ate it there. An undignified death but what an opportunity to see wildness as it is.
