Jackdaw carrying food

By Mike_Young
Good evening all,
Thanks to all for visiting my last image "Face to Face" I'm really pleased to have had a positive reaction to it . Also very chuffed to have several awards as well, thanks again.

This evenings upload was captured at my plot yesterday afternoon and was a shot that I very nearly missed. This Jackdaw had either found or captured this large male Wood mouse and was just about to carry it away. It didn't go far and landed next door where it ate its prize.
Sorry to those that may be a bit squeamish but this is Nature.

Thanks for viewing
