    I guess the hawks were doing their job then, Jenny? Lurking just out of your line of sight…. Eastbourne was my first experience of the coffin ‘going down’ ( well half down) into a hole in the floor. Everyone filed out past it and seemed obliged to touch it as they went…

    I was actually at a funeral at Eastbourne crematorium a few weeks ago. No sign of either hawks or seagulls I have to say. There were some lovely dragon flies though!
