Carry on Crow

Returning from a walk along the pier at Tynemouth the other day I came across this Crow devouring a Feral Pigeon on the roof of the sailing club building.
It noticed me watching
and proceeded to do a little jig before continuing with its meal
I wonder what got the Pigeon in the first place, Peregrine most like although I've never seen one there before and not a likely spot for it to take a kill but anybody familiar with the quays at Tynemouth and Blyth will know how many pigeons are available though.


  1. Peter it does not look like a Pigeon to me is it not a wader , still dead I know !!!!

  2. Yes that would be as likely and I didn't give it much thought other than lots of grey down feathers.
