This last week has brought excellent views of Hawfinch in various parts of the Forest of Dean. This one was seen on Tuesday, eating what I believe were stones from Yew berries that were laying on the ground beneath the trees.
A juvenile Goshawk photographed back in July 2013 in the Forest of Dean. I’ve not been able to work out what prey it’s carrying, but it appears to be feathered.

A cold day, and some rain followed by sunshine, made for quite an atmospheric sight last Tuesday as the condensation rose from these Wild Boar. The shadow from the sow partially obscured the plumes that appeared as she exhaled, but you can’t have it all. This photo was taken the day before the previous photo of the male in the snow.
