Hunter and the hunted (1 Viewer)


Out on my morning walk I spotted a pheasant on a roof and it was looking very alarmed. I've never seen a pheasant on a roof before. Something must have chased it up there and I suspected a cat. Wandered over to get a photo and look who I spotted in the back garden keeping an eye on the pheasant! I think it's a sparrowhawk.

Goodness, how interesting, George. Great shots of the sparrowhawk and pheasant, too.

I was thinking the same thing about the Pheasant being too large but who knows?


I spotted a pile of pheasant feathers outside my house this morning. Just feathers though, so it obviously got away from whatever attacked it.
