Suddenly a Peregrine Falcon dropped out of nowhere picked up one of 4 Sparrows sitting on the power lines at the back of my house and without a pause flew off down the hill towards Duffy. He could have had one of 24 fat pigeons sitting on the power lines!

I suspect the falcon has been around for a few days because large flocks of SC Cockatoos were flying about in great consternation yesterday.
