Definitely an adult bird! It was real windy yesterday in Essex so Alex's bird could have travelled 40 miles depending on the timescale between escape and the pics being taken. Also would the wind direction between the two points yesterday lend itself to the bird going in that direction as I doubt any Gos would fly that distance against the wind.

Where in Essex?

Going by the pic, I would say that it is not Alex's bird as I coped it a couple weeks back and the beak is to long

Is anyone aware of any updates on this?
Following kind and helpful communication from Clive, I passed the telephone number and all other details to Steve who has a female Goshawk out in Essex, but he then couldn't get any response on the available telephone number.
If there is any news, please let me know so I can pass it on to Steve to help assist in a coordinated search and recovery.
I am in Scotland, so not much I can do beyond act as an intermediary, but it's better than doing nothing at all.
Thanks
Barry

Hi guys, i dropped my phone whilst out looking for the goshawk, I also feel that he would not have travelled 40 miles in less than 24 hours as we hard rain all night and the wind. You can contact me on my other halfs phone please pm for number. Otherwise she will kill me
