    Interpol need to be notified and Nadal needs to be arrested and interrogated immediately.

    In Dubai there is a hawk who is working to clean up the skyscrapers from pigeons.

    He is making a deal to remove all Hawkeyes. He is tired of chasing the pigeons and Hawkeyes do nothing and watch the lines.

    One of the comms said he even had a hawk "mate" stand in for him when Rufus was missing.

    He's supposed to be back now, though. Taking a little rest after his abduction, but I think he will be back to work patrolling in the quarters.

    I'm glad he's back. I think it's a great idea to have a hawk running air traffic control over Wimbledon.
