Before and after...

Ok, not the same bird but this is what they should look like:

Fieldfare...alive and well: R. Harris
...And this is what happens to them when a large female sparrowhawk smashes into one:

It 'as ceased to be, it 'as shuffled off this mortal coil...
Dead on impact - haven't seen such a quick, clean
kill in a long time
A flock of 40+ linnet and a flock of 56 skylarks the only other birds of note on patch at the moment. Hoping to see the regular merlin return in the next few weeks, fingers crossed.

Flock of 40 linnets have been on patch for a while now.
No wonder farmers get annoyed - why do people
have to walk right across the crops! Too lazy (or ignorant)
to walk around the outside of the field.
