Spotted a hawk sim to this last friday which was perched on a neighbours chimney in Kenilworth rd. It was about 4pm. A few people were looking at it as they walked past on Brighton st. It stayed for about 5mins then flew off and landed on the Town Hall tower.

Not sure if it's this one but I also saw a large hawk type bird sat on top of a lamp post on the entry slip at J1 on the south bound side one morning last week. Quite often see buzzards but normally a bit further along the motorway so thought it a bit unusual.

I heard something about a hawk on the loose this week, apparantely someone posted a vid of it on facebook, trying to eat a pigeon, and im sure they said it was in the Bebington road area of Rock Ferry, the person taking the vid must of disturbed it and the hawk released the pigeon and flew off. The pigeon stumbled to its feet and also flew off. Someone also commented how they seen it in their back garden eating a pigeon and it left a lot of pigeon mess behind, without going too graphic. I will get some more info later or tomorrow and will try and get the video and will post it on here.

Just an update on my earlier info, the vid was posted on the group called Wirral newsbeat on facebook, but it seems to of been taken down now, may be worth contacting the admin of the group and he/she may put you in touch with whoever uploaded the vid. But it was definitely in Rock Ferry.

I think it's the hawk we've seen every day for the past week flying about the Bidston moss . we see it while we are walking the back path nearest to the motorway. This is the motorway that runs from the bottom of mill lane to the B&Q roundabout. hope this is a help.

ps the moss is a public space and you get onto it by using the
path down the side of the tip. Good luck

I saw this hawk today at Junction 1 on the M53, sitting on the lamp post just like j_demo said above. This was about 6pm.

A similar bird was feasting on a pigeon in next door's garden, but this was a few months ago.
