S.J. Petty
1989
The goshawk is a large bird of prey which was re-introduced into Britain in the 1960s and 1970s. Populations are now beginning to expand, particularly in areas with large forests, and where human persecution is not a limiting factor. It is predicted that goshawks will become relatively common in some parts of Britain by the early 1990s. They are generally considered a spectacular and welcome addition to forest wildlife. Goshawks are vulnerable to both accidental and wilful human disturbance when they are breeding. Recommendations are given for the management of nesting areas, together with a background of the history of goshawks in B ritain, their requirem ents, population density and the legislation which gives them full protection.
