I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Nice. Where do you live? The most I see in my garden in the morning is a pigeon being chased by a cat, one time I did see two giant pigeons though ... that was weird.

In Derby, apparently these hawks/falcons/things are nesting in the cathedral in my city centre, about 7 miles away from me.

There is a hawk that lives up the road from me (I live across the road from a national park).
It's pretty cool.We also get wedge tailed eagles and they are MASSIVE!

Only weird people take photos of falcons eating pedgeons in their garden.

But it's still cool.

Srsly? There's this crane that keeps eating all the fish out of our pond. I was unfortunate enough to open the back door once while it was apparently sitting on the roof. It took off and I nearly shat myself, I thought it was a pterodactyl.

Nice. There are loads of hawks round here (hurrah for living in Shropshire) so I see them hunting all the time. Once I was in Shrewsbury park and one had attacked a pigeon, and there was an air battle between them Then the pigeon dropped to the ground, but the crows that hang out here scared the hawk away. I went over to have a look and the thing was still alive with its back and wing torn. I felt a bit bad, but figured something or other would eat it in time.

Quote by Glen'sHeroicAct
a hawk's nothing, i've woken up to see bald eagles in my garden. Those birds are seriously huge.


That would be pretty damn cool to see.

usually there are just morbidly obese pigeons in my garden so this is a change
my mums overfeeds them so much i saw one fat pigeon fend of a cat successfully.

Because, all I heard was it's wings whooshing in the air and when it flew over me, it got all dark. I think it had a small child in it's claws.

It's not a peregrine, I think it's a Sparrowhawk, you can tell by the white ridge above it's eyes.

You know that by saving that you've probably screwed over many native animals? People go to great lengths to kill Indian mynas because they're feral pests.. So maybe not such a good deed?

And on topic. Pretty cool seeing that in your backyard.

I get a lot of hawks in my area - Esher, Surrey. I've seen one Heron before. I have Koi in my garden so I can only imagine that it was trying to look for an easy meal.



Before anyone says it, Herons are extremely big and are capable of feeding moderately large mammals.

Nice, a peregrine. Lincoln Cathedral has nesting peregrines too, and the guy who lives opposite my parents has several at his falconry. We had a couple of Merlins nesting nearby too:



I love birds of prey and falconry. Loved it after seeing a great big f*ck off Golden Eagle up in Scotland.

I used to live in Cranwell for a few years back when The Backstreet Boys were at their prime Good times. The Green Man in the cathedral used to scare me though.
