As expected have been very busy of late in regard to London's Peregrines and have had little time to post let alone do some birding.
However I did come across the scene below albeit a bit distantly showing 5 Crows absolutely going at it hammer and tongs.
From what I could work out it was 2 pair having a territorial dispute and a single Crow probably hanging around to see what happened, even a Magpie joined in.
One of the pair was permanently pinned to the ground whilst it received a fearful bludgeoning from the other Crow pinning it down with the 2 mates having a scrap as well.
It could be also that the bird pinned down was sick and Crows being Crows had tried to finish it off, unfortunately I never saw the outcome.
