Hi Mely
I have been following the notts Falcons for years and they normally manage to produce four healthy chicks. This is one of the best web cams to follow as the birds develop over the season.

If you are all getting fed up looking at a blank screen again? The Peregrine Falcon cam at Nottingham Trent University is showing top quality close ups of the newly hatched chicks.
At least two can be seen under mother.

Hi NFG - enjoying pictures from the Goshawk nest - any chance of improving the sound quality so we can hear the Dawn Chorus, Cuckoo etc?

Raptorman, I was only using sparrowhawks as an example of how an assumed trend in nest building can be turned on its head. Of course I don't bracket goshawks and sparrowhawks...they are two distinct species with very different habits.

You seem to want to think of the Goshawk as Sparrowhawks and they aren't. I base my posts on available research and my experiences at numerous nests in an area larger than the British Isles, combined with others of which there are many of us that discuss various raptors including this species.

Certainly there are occasional exceptions within members of a species and that's the reason for my comment but with Goshawks considering their world range combined with the variety of habitats they utilize this nest location is not unusual.

I bow to your greater knowledge on this one,Raptorman. But nothing can be taken for granted. I studied sparrowhawks for 20 years and found about 200 of their nests over that period.For 19 of those years every nest I found was built right up against the tree trunk. In the 20th, I then found two nests built right out along a branch, some ten feet from the trunk...nature seems to have no hard and fast rules, does it!

This Goshawk nest is now live after much effort. This is not an HD camera, so will not be the same sort of quality we managed from the unoccupied Buzzard nest. But we hope the action on the nest makes up for the reduced quality of the video.

This is frustrating for all of us and we have been very lucky over the last 9 years. However, we are working hard on the possible alternatives and making plans. Keeping in mind that the welfare of the birds is paramount. So we hope to have some encouraging news over the next 5 days.

Apologies to everyone about the lack of news. We are able to confirm after much time spent monitoring the nest area, that the female is laying eggs in a different nest. This is a nest with no camera!

The new season has now started! Date with Nature 2015 will be open everyday until 6 September at the Reptile Centre, 10am to 4.30pm.

Looking forward to see the action unfold on both the goshawk nest and common buzzard nest this season!

We have cameras on two nests this year. A Goshawk and a Common Buzzard. The Goshawk camera is live, but may not be properly streaming on the internet for a few days. We are hoping that a Common Buzzard will nest in front of our camera, but will not know for certain for another week or so.

The team have now switched off the nestcam at the hobby nest. The Date with Nature is open until 1st September at The Reptile Centre, 10am until 4.30pm.

Next season will start again around the end of March/beginning of April when we should be back on a goshawk nest.
