This photo of a fe­male goshawk was taken by Blairie reader Kenny Grant.

Kenny, who lives in Coupar Angus, said:“They were once ex­tinct in the UK but started to be­come reestab­lished in the 60s and 70s, although they are still quite rare.

“They feed on medium-sized birds and rab­bits and hares.”
