Description

1st year bird suddenly seen on the ground, just 3 meters on my side. A few seconds for watching in detail, but not enough to snap... Confirms the presence of northern goshawk in the area (last year in Garneyre, 500 meters from there, reported me he had to protect with net his chickens due to northern goshwawk coming sometimes to kill and eat some of them).
