    The wife took this the other day whilst leaning out of the van window.

    I'd dropped her off to do a bit of shopping and when I went to pick her up she said this thing was in the middle of the road. She had to stop the traffic and usher it to the pavement. It tried in vain to take off with its dinner but that just wasn't going to happen so it just had it there and then, people walking past and everything.

    A Sparrowhawk - a beautiful bird and a lucky find (less so for the pigeon).

    Ah, cheers for that Eagle. We thought it was a Sparrowhawk but nice to have it confirmed.
