Golden Eagle at Wiston

Just had a phone call from Phillipa Parlor who lives at Wiston as follows:

"I was just watching the two regular Red Kites hunting and chasing each other over the meadow behind the house. One of the kites caught something quite large - about rat sized - when suddenly a HUGE bird appeared from nowhere, mugged the Red Kite, caught the rat in mid-air then flew off. It must have been a Golden Eagle as it was so much bigger than the kites."
