Sat 23 Oct White Goshawk St Helens, West St
Observed 1, probable male by smaller size, pursued by 2 Forest Ravens flying south above canopies of tall open Tas Blue Gum forest in partially cleared land, then flying out of sight south across Medea Swamp. Two days later a friend reported a probable female also flying west above Medea Swamp near St Helens rubbish dump. Possibly we have a pair in the rubbish dump/cemetery area.
