Shropshire - Peregrine v Raven

Peregrines will tackle just about any other bird when they have a mind to - the smaller male is just as plucky and more manouvreable than the female! Dwarfed by this Raven, he decided to have a go asserting territorial rights (no montages or pastes, these are as it happened)......

Into the stoop......







The in your face stand off.....












Then one minor problem, bluff called, the Raven was having none of it and turned the tables by giving chase when the chance arose!











It all happened rather distantly and rather quickly but shows the size difference quite nicely. The Raven had better watch out - could be a reckoning with the female next time.....
