Sparrowhawk in Alvechurch

A sparrowhawk crashed into our patio doors with a wood pigeon in its claws, so it probably forgot to use its brakes at the bottom of the swoop to kill the pigeon.

When it had recovered a little, it took its prey to the shelter of our apple tree where I photographed it plucking the feathers before it flew off.
