African Goshawk 951213 Accipiter tachiro

This adult male African Goshawk was in the grounds of the Boulevard Hotel, Nairobi. I spotted it from my room and watched it through my telescope, as this was back in the days of film cameras and my longest lens being a 400mm I did not have much chance of a photo. I put a 135mm lens (I think) on my camera and fired off a few shots through the telescope. Amazingly one came out!

 

Not quite digiscoping, more like camera scoping.

 

I was reminded of this shot by the recent posting by Dave Appleton.
