Crow Hassles and Intimidates a Hawk out of its Territory over the Fens

Another show as a Hawk is surprisingly hassled by a crow to get out of the airspace. I watched as the smaller crow swooped and intimidated the Hawk to leave the area. Perhaps the hawk was close to the crow's nesting ground and it had young to protect. The crow seemed a lot more agile and manoeuvrable then the hawk, but just one blow from the hawk's talons could have finished the crow. Despite this the smaller crow should remarkable resilience and was able to turn flying agility to advantage. Eventually the hawk just glided off. It will come back again. Of this I'm sure.

the crow homes in on the hawk as it glides over the fen.


Then, to my surprise, the crow attacked the hawk.
A brief hit and run as the cumbersome hawk tries to evade.


Job done as the crow flies away and the hawk leaves the area.
