Peregrine Surprise

RN2A4084Its always a nice surprise when a Peregrine appears from nowhere and flies past you at breakneck speed. This happened during the week when I was exercising our two dogs along the local canal. It had its sights on a Canada Goose but veered off at the last minute and gave a high pitched call that I have never heard before.
During the last week Lapwings have returned to our local industrial estate to roost on the warm roof. They peaked at 350 on the 8th and this is one of the largest flocks I have ever seen at this site. A few photos are in this weeks gallery.Click here
