A juvenile Goshawk photographed back in July 2013 in the Forest of Dean. I've not managed to identify the prey being carried, but it appears to be feathered.

Wild Boar

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.

Wild Boar

A male Wild Boar in the Forest of Dean yesterday, following an inch of snow which was all gone by evening. On the 12th of January, I found the first piglets of 2015.
