A musician was walking down his road when a falcon and a seagull fell out the sky just metres away from him.
No, it's not the start of a joke
. Well, certainly not for the seagull
Mr Jones said: “They just landed in front of me on the pavement and fought to the death – the seagull lost the battle.”
Yes, well. Was that outcome ever in doubt?
“I tried initially to separate them as I thought the seagull was fighting its young...
...but then I saw it was a bird of prey and thought I’d better leave them to it because they can snap at you.”
“We just had to let nature take its course.
“It took me by surprise. You might expect to see a dog fight, but not this.”
“It was a weird sensation – it was a very sinister occurrence in a suburb street and reminded me of a Hitchcock moment.
It makes me wonder if a domestic cat would be safe.
I guess seagulls are plentiful for avian predators, but it might have forgotten whose neighbourhood it was hunting in.”
Just because we do not tend to see it, does not mean it does not happen. Its Mother Nature's way of showing the 'Man child' that she can be a real bitch !
We have come to see life through the camera lens. Whether it be nature or human, and see things in a sanitized way and not how it is.
Where is a meteorite strike when you need it?
He gets to see a peregrine close up, he gets to see a peregrine kill close up and he is whinging about it. FFS get a grip man, lots of us (well me) would be happy to see such an event and one less seagull, which isn't bad either.
Too much Disney
Huddersfield Town centre is the venue for the scariest bird fights. Nothing could prepare Mr Jones for the sanguinary duels seen in the early hours of Sunday morning.
it forgot the neighbourhood it was hunting in?
"This is our turf hawk boy get lost or we`ll send the crows round"
A small bloody seagull then....(?)
It's not well known, that seagulls are very hard to catch by other birds, and they don't have a lot of meat on them, that is why most birds don't bother,well, thats what a twitcher told me.
"He gets to see a peregrine close up, he gets to see a peregrine kill close up and he is whinging about it."
Yup! But then, look at any story in the 'Mail' (like yesterday's baby elephant vs lion story) and note the anthropomorphism...
