Christine Cassidy - The Sad Tale Of A Coal Tit

"I just came home this morning to find a dead Coal Tit lying on my patio, it must have hit against my French Doors (i have a Wind Chime up to prevent this from happening) although it may have been chased by my resident Sparrowhawk, that would have resulted in it hitting the doors.  

 Within a couple of seconds I noticed a Coal Tit carrying food to the dead bird, then another Coat Tit arrived, (both parents) the male started to kick the dead bird with its feet, as the mother continued to try and bring food to it, this went on for about 15 minutes until i could no longer watch both parents getting very stressed, i decided it was time to lift the dead bird. I have never witnessed behaviour like this ever before."
