I was pottering in the garden on Sunday, and thought I may have been visited by a fox, as there were A LOT of grey feathers from something like a pidgeon or collared dove, judging by feather size & colour. There was no mess & no bones either, making me think maybe a fox (I was a bit surprised as we have a rescue GSD cross). I'd forgotten earlier in the week there was something big swooping around & not a sparrow to be seen.
Anyway, I was near the patio window doing some tidying earlier today, and I saw something very big and very fast turning on a sixpence as though it was after a smaller bird that was trying to take evasive action. I only got a glimpse of it, does anyone know what it might be? I'm not really a country girl so don't know what it could be. I know there are owls in the village, the ones that make a screaming noise, not the ones that go woo-hoo (like they always have in horror films). Could it have been an owl in daylight.
I'd be very interested to know what it could be. Was 2-3 times the size of the doves we get round here.
