This bird of prey, I came across while walking through a car park, with my daughter. between two hotels. I heard some screeching and noise of wings flapping and fluttering rather strenuously within the nearby trees.  I looked about to focus on the actual tree and what the cause was. Here I found two of these birds fighting over the meal. I was ready with my camera and managed to capture the victor, which is in these  photo’s was ready to fight for his food and was now ready to eat in peace. The loser had flown away by the time I was ready.
