Nice shot of a lovely creature. We've got a similar killer on the loose
in the area surrounding and including our property. Every few days I'll notice a carpet of white feathers from another unlucky resident wood pigeon on the grass or our path. Luckily we have quite a few pigeons...hence the attraction i suppose.

Now that dawn is arriving later I keep telling myself I should do a stake out with camera and hope to catch the killer in the act.

Lovely portrait.
We had a nesting pair for several years but people complained about the noise they made. .... The council chopped their tree down !!
