On the weekend I came across a couple of  'Accipiter' hawks which I
believed to be Collared Sparrowhawk (Accipiter cirrhocephalus)
I took some digital images of the birds and noticed some differences
which seem to suggest they might be Brown Goshawk (Accipiter fasciatus)
though I still feel my initial ID was correct.
Please take a look at  I've put on
the images and some of my concerns but would love to hear your opinions,
