Goshawks back in business

Photo: Terje Kolaas / Din Tur

Only 24 hours after the bait was put out, the first Goshawk appeared our excellent feeding site for raptors near Molde. An adult female and a male visit the bait several times a day now, and the hide is ready for photographers from to day.

The Pine Martens are still active close near by, so within a couple of days you can combine photographing these shy creatures in one singel trip.
