Mooney Friday 25 October 2013
One of our listeners Clare Roebuck emailed into Mooney@rte.ie with an interesting picture of a Sparrowhawk. Clare spotted the Sparrowhawk in her front garden yesterday (Thursday). The initial attack on the pigeon began around 11am and the Sparrowhawk returned around 4pm to finish his snack. Clare & her son were very keen to send the picture into us, and thank you Clare & Eoin. Super picture, we love this stuff in the office.
