We were sat talking and I saw a Sparrow Hawk swing passed the window and appear to drop a squawking ball on the grass in the process. I got up and looked to see a Goldfinch on the lawn looking a bit poorly I sent hubby straight out to the poor thing, when he tried to pick it up the first time it tried to get away. But gave up and it's poor little head went limp. He brought it inside quietly and handed the little thing to me. I sat for about 20 mins cupping the little one in my hand just as you can see in the video. As soon as I felt a rush of life and some flapping around in my hands I realised the little one was just about over being stunned. So outside we went eek: I was only in my nightie too! It's amazing what and adrenalin rush can do!), and the rest can be seen in the video. We saved a life today! If we hadn't gone out and rescued the Gold finch quickly, the sparrowhawk would have gone straight back for it. I might not be a mum celebrating Mothers Day today, but we may just have saved a mum to be Please excuse my mumbled words :lol: Couldn't exactly reshoot though [youtube_browser]RiZw92NeDDA&hd=1[/youtube_browser] I know nature is nature and all that and usually I wouldn't intervene, but I couldn't bare to see that happen today.
