A possible goshawk was seen briefly but very clearly down at the flood this morning. It was very large (almost buzzard sized), barred chest and broad winged. It passed over Aldcliffe Hall Lane where I was able to ascertain it wasn't wearing any falconers jessies (I think that's the term).
It's good to see a posting from Jon Carter, the founder of the Aldcliffe blog, on the LDBWS website. It's even better that he has seen the wood sand and lesser yellowlegs today and that this big beast didn't take either of them.
