Sun 10 Apr Grey Goshawk Fort Direction South Arm (Restricted Access)
I first saw the bird at 0630 on the 10th of April, it was perched high up in a Radiata pine and has remained on site since. My last sighting of it was around 2200 hrs last night roosting once again in the Radiata pine. Over the last few days I have noticed it swooping onto the ground time and time again with no apparent success, I suspect it might be a young bird or one in trouble as I noticed it feeding on 4 day old carrion just before dark last night.
