In addition to the Brown Goswarks in the ANBG and Mulligan's Flat there also appears to have been a successful breeding in or around the Sanctuary in Tidbinbilla.  Have been hearing calls over the last few weeks in there . On Friday I had a good look at one of the birds, a big juvenile female.

There were (at least) 3 hawks around the upper tracks at ANBG this morning, and I got snaps of two different birds. I would be grateful if any member could identify them - whether Sparrowhawks or Goshawks (or one of each) - from the pictures below ... and if so, indicate what were the definitive features determining such decision.
