1 Sparrowhawk (Yesterday morning at Home Farm , I saw from the house a female over what turned out to be a freshly killed Stock Dove on the gravel of the courtyard . It was in the process of plucking it . When the man delivering the paper at 7 30 am disturbed it , it half flew , half dragged the prey a few feet towards cover, stood over it and shortly after flew off . The prey remained untouched all day . This morning however , at around 8 30 am , the prey had gone but there was a whole new pile of feathers where it had been . ) ,
