Shropshire - Peregrines at play

It's blowing a gale, overhead a falcon glides - effortlessly hanging then harnessing the power of the wind, imperceptible wing adjustments alter it's course and then, like a bullet it streaks overhead. I've just witnessed the complete master of flight - a Peregrine and I'm lucky to capture that moment........










Juvenile Peregrines are also now on the wing - instantly recognisable by their brown streaked underparts. Learning the serious art of hunting is merged with play - awesome yet comical but an unforgettable sight......
