Goshawk lair update

It was a dreary wet day yesterday but I wanted to go and visit the Goshawk plucking site that I had found earlier in the year. It’s in a particularly dark and dense bit of coniferous woodland off the beaten track so we headed up there to see what we could find.

When we’d been here earlier in the year there had been distinctive signs of pheasant and small mammal bones, feathers and carcasses on top of a large tree stump. Unfortunately there were no further signs of the bird continuing to use it. I wonder if it will come back here. However the rain made the fungi look spectacular.
