Great picture,if a little gruesome!
What a pity that the natural order of life requires the sacrifice of the weaker.

We're all part of the big re-cycle scheme!

Which capture do you mean Mark the photo or the dead bird? Not keen on the subject myself but I realise its part and parcel of the animal food chain, they cant go to Tesco or Asda can they.

Time you did some weeding Joe!

Just one bird I think Margaret, it's the whole of the dead birds right wing folded back which gives you that impression.

That is so sad!

As a lover of Raptors...l think this picture is stunning.
This bird is in excellent health and is obviously capable of tackling prey almost its own size.

A well deserved prize.

This type of photo is absolutley brilliant. Have a pair of sparrow hawks come through my garden on a regular run, I tend to find there meals a little later....! Nature natural as it should be. Excellent photo.
