Out on the pedals before six this morning, I watched a buzzard swoop and carry off a still-struggling rat. Who says they eat only carrion?

An underrated bird, the buzzard. I remember hearing an out-of-his-depth father tell his young son the big bird circling over the cycle track was an eagle. But then again, it was big like an eagle, it soared like an eagle and it fixed you with a beady eye, just like an eagle.

Naturally as a vegetarian of some 30 years standing, save for whimpering at the slightest whiff of a crispy bacon sandwich, white bread, too much butter and a dollop of ketch, I'm frankly appalled at the buzzards flagrant disregard for the sanctity of life. Haven't they heard of quinoa....

"We've all heard of helmet hair, but balaclava hair, not so much. I unpeeled this morning's layers and that's what I found. It ain't pretty."
