murder on the lawn

Predator was possibly a local sparrow hawk, but who was the victim? There are small fluffy grey feathers and longer brown feathers. Female blackbird?

Victim and culprit

Almost cetainly a sparrowhawk kill, from the appearance on my PC, victim almost certainly a collared dove - the large black/brown feathers would be primaries or tail feathers.
