Birds - Northern Goshawk
The Northern Goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) nests in trees, building a new nest each year. It hunts birds and mammals in woodland, relying on surprise as it flies from a perch or hedge-hops to catch its prey unaware. Animals as large as hares and pheasants are taken for prey. Its call is a fierce screech.
The length of the Northern Goshawk is 21-26 inches and the wing span up to 29-37 inches.
