Another plus is that the so called "Experts" have been proved wrong. All the literature on Goldies tells that they do not become sexually mature until at least 5 years old, but this female has been breeding since she was 3.

I found it fascinating when the male Goldie brought a full nest of crow chicks, why waste energy going back and forth for each chick when you have the strength to take the whole lot in one go

I found that interesting as well, a simple but effective technique to preserve energy and supply enough food. Great filming from the cameraman/women as well, it's what makes the show so good.

What I didn't love was when strackan said a tawny owl can fly faster than a spar! What a silly statement!
