Roller Pigeon – saved


The rogue sparrowhawk attacked again this afternoon but, by dint of swift action by The Major and yours truly, we were able to rescue it from the clutches of the attacker.  We are still not sure if the victim will live but we have tucked it up in the pigeon loft, with a supply of food and water, and can now only hope!

The trouble is the hawk is now still hungry……..

I do rather wish it could keep to a diet of wood pigeon and leave our Rollers alone.  We appear to have lost about 15 in the last few weeks.

We could lock them up but that seems equally cruel.  They are meant to fly not be caged.  So they just have to take their chance.
