Goshawk        Kanakull       Accipiter gentilis


Today after half past three the goshawk again attacked the osprey nest in Võrumaa and managed to drag out one of the young ospreys from the nest, and some time later tried once more to attack the nest.

The adult ospreys were out hunting during the time; the goshawk used the opportunity for an attack.

This year goshawk attacks on osprey nests have become significantly more frequent.

The events of today and a discussion of the topic can be read in the LK forum: LINK
