Northumberland, United Kingdom
Oh dear, nature can be so cruel. Every early evening we put out a mixture of brown bread, grated cheese, olive oil and a little warm water into our window feeder for the birds. They flock in their dozens to feed, and it makes wonderful viewing. But, tonight, as we were happily watching, a sparrow hawk flew down and snatched one of the little sparrows. The squealing was horrendous. My husband I are so upset. I know "it's nature" but when you actually witness it, it really is difficult. I know - not a questions, but I just had to tell someone.
