    Sparrowhawk you think I was going by the blacker last strip to the tail pointing to Kestrel you might be right will clean up the video and do a right zoom in when in back with the desk top pc. It was just a shocker it coming in like that

    Awesome video pug. I personally don t think it could lift one out.
    But on the other hand it could damage there body's with its talons. Awesome video. I bet it shocked you.

    Looks like a young bird trying to learn the ropes.

    The feeling seems to be it was a
    young bird seeing the movement of the fish and having a go and not knowing water is bad and what he was grabbing at. I just cant believe I had the camera on that spot running at the time on a tripod Its so close to a wing in the water and then I would have been fishing the little bugger out the pond with a net off camera he hardly made it to the side of the pond with the wet ass paused for 3-4 seconds then barely made it to the garden fence then a tree. It shook me up as much as him I think
