Author's notes

Bunny no. 4. Accidentally flushed it with a rabbit (the head already half eaten) which it dropped on the ground. I returned the next day, plucked fluff of rabbit was all that was left at the same spot and a very plump looking Goshawk (photo 3) in a tree 10-15 metres away. After its meals the Goshawk seems to be very tolerant of my presence.

Thanks Roy - It looks like it may have taken over from the Little Eagle in using this area as a roost and hunting site
