Thanks John. I was lucky that it fed in the bay for 2 hours and then it just 'bobbed head up tail down back to ramp and then decided to haul itself out and chill for the next 2 hours!
What a stunning photograph, did you use a "Trail Camera"? and if so what was the model? cheers
I'm not sure - I've seen Sparrowhawks decapitate prey but they tend to leave feathers as well even if they take it away to eat. Judging from the way my foxes crunch up chicken drumsticks with a substantial femur, I'd expect them to eat the head as well?Hi John. Came across a dead bird in the garden this week with only the head left. Now I’ve been having good views of the local foxes in daylight over the last few weeks. Would this be one of their MO’s?
A handsome dog Fox (I presumed due to size) just walked across the lane in front of us just now.
Hopefully not, that's terrific guidance. TYVM!Take a whole weekend, spend it at Kinghorn, the car park there has a great vista over the area, and there are public toilets as well, so a useful spot. There are more watchers at the weekend so makes the possibility of locating it better, and it is often quite far out so monster zoom lens for photos. Fulmar colony can keep you entertained during the hours of watching.
Let me know if you want any more info
