I was lucky enough to be taken to a Goshawk nest site today at a secret location under schedule 1 licence.
It was very hard going to reach the nest site but when we finally got there were rewarded with tremendous views of two Goshawk chicks, the adult birds must have been out hunting and even though we were in full camo gear more than likely they would have spotted us and stayed away.
It was pretty misty and dark in the forest so we had to use a very high iso setting and as wide an aperture setting as possible. So although not perfect the pic's are not to bad considering the conditions, we only stayed at the site for a few minutes to keep disturbance to a minimum.

Although this next pic is not one of mine it shows what these two chicks will eventually turn out like when they reach adulthood, they really are awesome birds.

A brilliant morning and thanks to everyone involved.
