The migration of Chinese Goshhawk begins in autumn 2008. I do my best as much as possible for the observation of a migration of Goshhawk. 
By the way, it is about 70km distance from my home to the observation place.
Therefore the everyday expenditure of gasoline becomes the considerable sum.
So for a remarkable rise of the gas price of these days, the everyday observationmay be difficult.

Look at the southwestern direction from Uchiyama Pass

A few years ago Hawk tended to fly for Tatera Mt from the Yatate Mt direction.
But in late years it is tending to fly for the Kayaba Mt direction from Maisinodan Mt of the back.
