I glanced out of the kitchen windows this afternoon as I was making the coffee to see the gentleman in the picture. We’ve caught a glimpse of him before, but this is the first time he has sat still to get his photo taken. He was definitely after the little birds because (aware of his presence) they were hiding in the ivy and twittering angrily, and every time one flew over he followed it intently with his yellow eyes.
He sat there for about ten minutes, and only flew off when T put in an appearance. I’m not sure what would happen if a cat had a go at a raptor, but I don’t think it would be nice for either of them.
