I mentioned in my last post that the sparrowhawk had downed another pigeon. Well she returned today to dine upon the unfortunate beast for a second time. She spent nearly three hours, plucking and turning her dinner to get at the best bits. She may yet make it last three days.
Isn’t she magnificent with her fierce yellow eyes and sassy stripey vest and pantaloons? I have previously blogged about sparrowhawks here.
