    A few years ago, a Goshawk caught a pigeon in my garden
    And we often get Kites flying over

    I was in Spain last week for a few days seeing a client of mine
    This Dracaena draco - Dragon Tree was growing in the garden of the next door building

    This is a “baby”
    They get huge

    Oh wow that's amazing! All the various dracaena species I've see here are sold as indoor house plants, and I've yet to see one taller than 1,5m

    Yes, there are a few other species of Dracaena that are commonly sold as houseplants here too

    I have a few tiny (10cm or so) draco plants that I grew from seed. About 5 years old

    While in Spain last week went to a restaurant on a harbour wall.
    Was standing on the edge for a minute or two and quite a few of these fish came towards me. They must be fed by people

    A type of Seabream
