Rosie and the Goshawks

Some members know Rosie Bowman, either through conservation volunteering or on our walks, when she worked for Birds Aware Solent. Now her love of our area and the New Forest has taken her inland to become the RSPB's staff member at the Date With Nature project at the Reptile Centre near Lyndhurst. There she, and a keen team of volunteers, run the project which aims to show live footage from a Goshawk's nest (somewhere in the New Forest) over the coming weeks as well as showing other aspects of wildlife in the Forest.

Goshawks are early breeders and the chosen nest already has chicks - see However the image is seen better at the Reptile Centre than over the internet.

Good luck Rosie!
