Dead Bird Falls From Sky

We were driving on a main road through open open fields near to Henley when a medium sized brown bird tumbled down out of the misty sky and hit the road just in front of us on its back with its feet straight up in the air. A Monty Pythonish moment! There wasn't any shooting in the area but the temperature was only 3 degrees + windchill. Could the bird have died of cold/exhaustion? Unfortunately it was not safe to stop and see what sort of bird it was, hence my dismal sketch.
