Raptor breeding observation notes

Untitled-1Following on from Steve’s excellent breeding activity chart which we featured last month,  Steve has now produced a companion document, in the form of some raptor breeding activity observation notes. The previous chart illustrated when to look out for the different phases of breeding for each respective raptor species. This chart expands on that by detailing the behaviours  witnessed during courtship, nest descriptions, clutch sizes and duration of incubation, post-hatching behaviour and fledgling mortality. As per the previous chart, the observation notes are also viewable on the species page, and can be downloaded from the documents page.
