I just got back from 1 week nature photography in The Gambia, West-Africa. While I was there I received a letter about the Goshawk which is visiting the hide on regular base since December 2013, both winter and summer. It was carrying a ring with number H177116 and I wanted to know where he came from. Seems it's a male, ringed on the 3th of June 2013 in Retie, only 13 km away. The bird is about 2 years old now. Seems he has found a nice territory.

You can see the ring on his right leg.
