Looking for the Goshawk
In the UK it is easier to find a stuffed goshawk in a  museum than to get to see one in the flesh and feathers. Conor Jameson has travelled to many places to do better, and written a book about it.

£4 for RSPB and Wren Group members, £4.50 for non-RSPB members. Children free.
