A Twitcher’s dream come true….

Monday, April 26th, 2010

Bill Goodie, Reserve Manager, was seen today heading off with his trusty landrover. His destination?  Ah well, that’s being kept secret but we did manage to catch a glimpse of him at the old tunnel entrance.

Bill Goodie binoculars at the ready!

We did try to follow but he can get a move on when he wants to!

He's obviously looking for something!

Well, all you birding fans out there will be very excited to know that after all these years of looking, Bill has finally discovered the Guffinhawk nest!

We must keep the location secret but we will keep you up to date as soon as we see any bird sitting, it looks like this years nest and is typical of the Guffinhawk with the large sticks at the bottom, of course they line it with the breast feathers too.

Bill was very insistent that we did not linger too long to put any birds off.

But what a lovely view of the hillside the birds must get from up there , especially with it all in flower at this time of year.

Easter Hill in all its glory!
