dead rook- who dunnit?

One of my visiting rooks has bought it. I found a pile of feathers with mostly intact wings and a severed head.
Although a cat is the most likely suspect, the corpse is reminiscent of a raptor kill (sparrowhawks regularly dismember collared doves in the garden). Just wondered what the largest prey item people have seen sparrowhawks take?

In addition 2 male blackcaps in the garden this afternoon.
