This year I have been plagued by Sparrow hawks in my garden.
This weekend was frightening as one killed a bird and ate the prey.
It came back for visits to eat it’s victim and even dug up the bird when we buried it.
I have also had a Tawney owl in the garden.
I must point out that my garden is only small.
It caused me to wonder why this was happening.
Yes we are on the edge of the countryside.
I do think that feeding birds excessively plays its part.
Birds that visit such gardens are sitting targets.
We should be aware of this.
As for my garden I am looking into a small vibrating line that will keep large birds away.
I hope the small birds will appreciate my efforts to keep them safe.!
