Nikon D300 & Nikon 70-300 VR at 300mm. 1/640 Sec @ F7.1
A large hawk, almost reaching buzzard size. When seen close to it has a fierce expression with bright red eyes and a distinctive white eyebrow. Its broad wings enable it to hunt at high speed, weaving in and out of trees, and its long legs and talons can catch its prey in flight. The female is substantially larger than the male. In late winter and spring it has a ‘sky-dance’ display. Goshawks are still persecuted and their nests are frequently robbed. Source RSPB http://www.rspb.org.uk/wildlife/birdguide/name/...
