    Default Nature in the raw

    Sitting in lounge yesterday reading the "sundays" when there is a sudden "thump" and a mass of feather falling down on to the patio,at first I thought two pidgeons had a mid-air collision,next thing a bird crashes into the patio window, its a hawk !he quickly recovers and dives for the pidgeon on the patio and takes him on to the lawn for his sunday dinner !,typically flew off when I went to back door for a quick photo,altough I managed to get photo from bedroom window,have never seen a hawk flying near house before, after this happened the garden was clear of birds for a long time,

    Nice one that you were able to take a pic. Had something similar some time back the hawk was so quick just swooped down & grabbed a little bird & gone ..........

    I was at my girlfriends house the other day and she asked me to look at the window..

    I didnt see what she was on about at first... then, as I focused on the window pane, I could see the grease mark...

    It was a PERFECT impression of a bird that had flown into the glass... and I mean perfect... very detailed side of head, wing marks etc...

    Amazing

    Not so lucky for the pigeon. Brings a new meaning to fast food I guess though.

    Deffo a sparrowhawk. We had one around our garden in the cold weather, preying on the birds that had come down for food. It was actually sat in our apple tree one morning, and I thought "That's a big pigeon. With big yellow feet. Oh........!"
