Superb views of a displaying female goshawk were had, the best in some time, with her enlarged undertail coverts and eyestripe clearly visible at close range. A juvenile female goshawk also passed. Searches around the Crabtree Hill area to the north once again proved unproductive for great grey shrike.
13:00: Wenchford, Dean, Gloucestershire (51.767421, -2.501935)
Dippers appear to have declined in the Forest of Dean since I last engaged with studying territories in 2014 and 2015, however I noted one bird on a classic stretch of river here at Wenchford, not too far from some nest boxes which hopefully will be used.
15:45: Aust Warth, Severn, Avon (51.594903, -2.633640)
Superb views of three short-eared owls, now a critically endangered UK breeding species, at close range at their wintering site on the rough grasslands bordering the Severn. Fantastic birds.
