Shropshire - Peregrine moment!

A young female Peregrine, basking in the warm evening glow before a brief flight overhead - moments such as this never fail to give pleasure.....

I've had lots of 'Peregrine moments' - they never disappoint but an aerial manoeuvre is often over in the blink of an eye! On vitually the anniversary of a much celebrated image, I managed to catch the pass of a small bird from female adult to young male offspring!

What was interesting (if you look at the first image) the female was carrying the bird in her bill rather than talons - takes some nerve trusting the youngster with those trather sharp talons.......

What a moment!
