Crime Scene (again!)
Not much of a picture I know, but it's been an afternoon of high drama!
Lunchtime time today our attention was suddenly caught by a flash of movement out the lab window, followed by a loud bang!
A woodpigeon had flown straight into the window. Seconds later the reason why became obvious when a sparrowhawk landed on the outside light.
The impact must have killed the woodpigeon as the bird was dead on the path below.
The sparrowhawk was a bit shaken up too, but managed to fly off unscathed. We hoped it would come back for the pigeon, but a local cat snaffled it first.
It's the second sparrowhawk attack I have witnessed this week. We had one in the garden on Tuesday.
Who needs to go on safari when you have this drama on your doorstep!
