Hawk Spotted ! .... Empty Hawk Spotted ! ....

Mon Mar 29 2021, 18:36
.... In our garden! I was sat near t'window and this hawk flew round the corner, as they do, and landed in an apple tree. It was sat there for a few minutes, then it pounced .... on something I couldn't see, under the hedges.
So, I told my lad, who'd just come home from work, and he took some photos of it.
He also got a video of it, flying out from the hedges carrying it's victim, which I think was the male of a pair of blackbirds which have been building a nest nearby for a couple of weeks. Shame, but it's what happens.

Anyroadup, photos to follow later! Smile

Slo.Mo. Video of hawk flying off!

The video isn't as good, as that's on his phone. He left it recording, in the window, while he went outside with his camera.

Our David took it, Tom. He says it's a Nikon 3100, with a big long lens on it?

Poor blackbird indeed, but such is the way of life.
