“Spotted this Eurasian Tree-sparrow (Passer montanus malaccensis) who caught a large flying insect prey in our garden. It was careful to kill the insect and remove the head before taking it to a pavement and eat piece meal.

“This is the largest insect prey I seen it handle. Usually seeds and will try and get our earthworms when it can.”
