Market stalls are wonderful places for catching up, meeting new people and sharing tales. Last week while selling cassowary photo cards at the Mission Beach Village market, I met Fay Adams. Here is how Fay told Joan's story. Photos by Joan Gray.

Southern Bobook Owl variety NEQ Race Lurida.
When driving up Mt Lewis Road - a raptor was spotted sitting in the middle of the road up - ahead. It flew off and landed in grass/rubbish on one side of the road, and then flew off carrying something. The raptor flew off at a 45 degree angle, landed on the other side of the road, dropped the captive and flew off. Joan walked up to see what had been dropped. They believe confidently it was a grey goshawk.
