Looking down at dinner

This New Zealand Falcon was eyeing up its next snack, a duckling. I have never seen a New Zealand falcon in the central city, unheard of and this falcon flew into a tree where a mother duck had taken her ducklings for protection. People ran over when they saw the falcon and a lady guided the mother duck and ducklings into a pond. It had a happy ending but the falcon missed out on a feed although there were plenty more ducklings which it no doubt would have got later.
