Sparrowhawk eating a pigeon
Spotted in a rarely frequented lane close to the city centre - for location see NY4055 : Backhouse Walk, looking towards Victoria Viaduct .
I was able to observe this bird for several minutes, from just a few metres away. Eventually it took off, carrying the carcass with it.
