Gloucester Goshawk

At a secret location in Gloucestershire ...

Above: A goshawk nest near the top of the tree

Above: Jurjen climbs the tree

Above: All 3 Goshawk chicks in the nest were male. While Jurjen says that a nest full of males happens in Holland, Rob (the local ringer who found the nests) says that this is the first time he had seen this phenomenon.

Above: Females are bigger than males therefore the leg on the left is female, the one on the right, male.
Above: Those eyes are capable of seeing much more detail at distance than you or I ever could!
