Near Little Comberton a large bird of prey Buzzard - was making hard work of a climbing flight holding in its claws a magpie. About two seconds to observe this as I was driving in the opposite direction.

Comment in reply: I have heard of buzzards attacking magpies before - there are quite a lot of juveniles (shorter tails) about at the moment and they are less skilled at getting away!
