Patio Commotion in Mount Edgecombe

Hi Everyone,

At about 8pm last night Anne and I heard a commotion on our patio and as I looked up I thought I saw what looked like a small Owl grab a little Gecko off the wall. I ran outside to have a look but it had disappeared. About 10 mins later it flew back so I grabbed my camera and slowly went onto the patio and there, sitting on the floor, was a Common Quail. It then jumped / flew about 6 ft into the air up against the wall, obviously trying to catch a gecko , but after having no luck in then wandered off into the garden.

How amazing is that.
