Animals do the funniest things
I was working in the kitchen which overlooks the rear garden and there was a thud at the window. Most likely a bird so I go outside and indeed there is a Goldfinch fledgling looking stunned. Good I thought that means I don't have to 'neck it', the young bird flew onto the lawn further assuring me of it's safety.

That is until next doors cat made a pounce for the still dazed bird. Oh noes I think and the cat does grab the bird, until the Peregrine Falcon which must have spotted the soft target of a Goldfinch for its breakfast arrived at speed but it grabbed the cat which dropped the bird and then the falcon after raising the terrified cat about a metre from the ground dropped the cat. The falcon disappears, the cat disappears and the lucky, thankful soon to be adult Goldfinch escapes to safety. All in all an exciting 45 seconds or so.

If this is true I'm jealous as fuck.

It is true. I was surprised the falcon lifted the cat but it did and the cat had an array of talon marks.

Why would anyone down a glass of stunned bird in one gulp?
However, yeah, if true I'm well jealous.

Why would you not want to down a stunned bird. You city folk do not have a clue about our country ways.

A friend of mine has a photo he snapped on his phone one morning
It's not a brilliant picture, but it does show a squirrel carrying a pair of women's knickers, being chased along a fence by a cat. He sent it into Nuts or Zoo and they printed it...I'll see if I can dig it out of his facebook later if I can be arsed

I once saw a peregrine falcon grab a bird out of the air about 1 foot in front of my windscreen as I was driving along. Luckily (for the falcon) it flew off, as if it had smashed into the windscreen after catching its prey I could have posted that as real life slapstick.
