This is what Cathy saw:

There are house martin’s nesting at our house and a black bird came along fighting with the Martin knocked 3 baby’s out of their nest, sad but true.

Hi Cathy,

I never cease to be amazed at what birds do to other birds.  I have a few blackbirds in my garden and they are one of my favourite birds.  I would never ever have thought they they would fight with a house martin.

Does this happen often in the wild?

    I saw a really funny thing a few weeks ago- a Buzzard flew across our garden, hotly pursued by a crow, who was squawking at the Buzzard as he chased it. But the hilarious thing was…. a small bird about the size of a Finch flying also in hot pursuit of the Buzzard, just above the Crow- twittering away for all it was worth! They both had the same thing in mind- to chase the Buzzard away, but I couldn’t help thinking- would that little bird have been quite so full of himself without out his large and aggressive “mate” beside him!?

    Wish I’d seen it. Wouldn’t it have been great if you’d had your camera with you.

    A Buzzard being chased by a Crow! It is often Crows who are chasing smaller birds, so I wonder if he knew what was happening.

    I bet it was the high point of the little birds day to join in. But this does prove to me that birds think things out
