Hello,

I've missed the last two weeks and will catch up later . Dads PC had a disk crash and its taken two weeks to fix it. All photos were backed up but havent been recovered yet .

This was taken in our garden today . The local killer had a success. I would have liked the bird to get away , but saw the kill and got this shot.

Thanks for looking,

Charlie

Outstanding detail.
You have captured the face of Global warming ! Well "they" blame that for the birds going but we all know it's the garden Moggy to blame.
i have known birds escape but they usually die from streess later.

Great shot.

Such clarity in this image and for a junior member too. The instinct of a cat is to kill even if we do not like it, that is nature at it's most cruel.

Hi Charlie every photographer's nightmare the crash off the P/C. This is a well timed capture of a real true life thriller - you can see from the comments who is cat lovers and who fight the bird's corner - this is nature but I'm afraid I'm in the birds corner. Domestic cats are to blame for the sharp decline in songbirds as per the RSPB before I get another heated debate going.

I have never seen a cat kill a bird and then eat it, and thats why I find the whole thing so pointless. I know it's nature, but it saddens me every time I see it happen. (I'm a softie at heart when it comes to animals and birds), however, It's a fine shot and my vote goes for your photographic skill in this one Charlie, a superb shot.

Hi Charlie, I find it very hard to accept the contents of this image but I am a realist and know that it's what cats do. Your record of the event is well worth the two awards, it's brilliant timing.

Awesome photo Charlie, as always. You really do have a talent - keep up the good work.

Will resist the temptation to go on about the impact of domestic cats on the local wildlife - it's been said before...

Please to hear your Dad had the PC backed up. A reminder to us all to be disciplined.
