1 Goshawk (Considered to be second calendar year due to plumage and female due to size - slightly longer than Buzzard, wing span similar. Rounded tip to the tail, slight buldging to the secondaries and extended head and neck and powerful soaring. 14:40 gained height then soared in proximity to single Common Buzzard, which casually buzzed it. Shortly after when out of sight big eruption of gulls and a few Rooks from a field being worked could have been caused by this bird ) 2 Mediterranean Gull (+) 2 Swallow 3 Buzzard 1 Cormorant [James Davidson]
