Still enjoying popping in here every now and then - great images! And I'm with you, JimS - I love the idea of that being the same Goshawk - so let's just say it is! :thumbs_up: And I do think we may be right... :whistle:

Beautiful pictures of the African Goshawk JimS! I can also not find any information about how long it takes before they reach maturity, but will keep on searching. :thumbs_up:

Awesome Fish Eagle in flight and stunning close-up of the Crake! :clap: :clap:
