I'd not had a good look at a Goshawk for a while so was determined to put that right today. With the sun out and a very light breeze the weather was perfect at my chosen location (please excuse the deliberately vague details, out of necessity I'm afraid).
Within a short while a single Goshawk was picked up distantly and then up to 4 gave some mind-blowingly good scope views including some display flights. For a 30 minute period they were almost constantly in view! Add to that c12 Common Buzzards, c6 Sparrowhawks, Kestrel, a couple of distant singing Woodlark, Brown Hare and a nice close Stoat made for a great morning.
After lunch I went for a wander nearby and jammed in on a brief but thankfully calling Willow Tit plus at least another 6 Common Buzzards, Bullfinch, Yellowhammer, Marsh Tit, Woodlark and Siskins.
Having seen Brimstone as my first butterfly of the year yesterday I saw another today plus Red Admiral and Comma.
