Death & Destruction

Polly's Juvenile Willow Warbler found in her garage
Female Bullfinch

Rook
Male Siskin
Part of the chase
ditto
Closing in
Rabbit getting away?
Going for the Kill
Only 5 more minutes of this to go
Holding On
Rook Getting Involved?
Keeping an Eye on each Other
Checking on the Human Audience
The face of a Killer!
Sometimes pictures speak more eloquently than words!

Grim! Astounding sight though, a murderous mustelid getting what it wants. The students were lucky to witness that.

Yeah, you should have heard all the "oohs" & "arrhs" from the assembled multitude!

The rabbit has myxomatosis - you can see the eyes are swollen.

Yes, I wondered if anyone would notice! Although the rabbit had a lingering death lasting over 5 minutes, it wasn't as long as it would have been if the Stoat hadn't intervened!
