Terror from the skies!

Left for work as usual this morning and took footpath near to the Heuried Kunsteisbahn to get bus
on corner Birmendorferstrasse.
It's a nice quiet tree lined walk parallel to the main drag.
I noticed that something high in the trees was making a helluva racket.
Crow/raven/jackdaw thingy.
It suddenly went quiet and I started to hear these whoooossshhh! noises around my head.
Hmmmm! Funny.
Noises continued sporadically and then noticed what looked like a black shadow whizz over my head.
What the hell! I'm being dived bombed by this ...thing.
I tried to ignore it but the demented bird followed me all the way to the main road...100+ meters...
all the time stalking from from tree to tree and repeatedly dive bombing.
It even waited for me on the roof of last building before the main road.
Peace at last!
Came home at lunchtime to collect something I had forgotten...and what do you know...
it starts the same game again...squawking like mad and buzzing round my head.
I ever considering returning by a different route, but decided..Naw...not going to be intimidated.
So, for the third time I had to run the gauntlet.
Thankfully, when I got back this evening the looney had departed.
I wonder if it's planning a new angle of attack for the weekend.
Beware! Maybe it's watching...waiting... for you to walk under the trees somewhere in Zurich!

Rats can be threatening to nesting birds and their fledglings. Best to take the sewers next time.
