Chichester perigrines

The perigrine bug has got to me and I was reminded about the perigrines at Chichester Cathedral. So I joined a couple of friends last evening and was entertained by a family of two adults and four fledglings and what entertainment it was.
 An adult brought home the evening meal, I think the remains of a feral pigeon.
After the kids had eaten their share the adults tidied up.
One adult seemed to take offence at being photographed and tries to put the evil eye on me.
After a good meal a couple of youngsters relax in the evening sun on the cathedral roof.

  1. Fantastic captures Mike!:) All in beautiful light, and it's lovely to see the youngsters, but I have to agree with you, the evil eye look is scary.

About Me

My photo
Evacuated during the second world war to a village in Yorkshire where I lived in the home of a good photographer for more than five years who taught me the basics and a great deal about nature. Well past retirement age I have been a wildlife photographer for more than 30 years. Red Kites have been my speciality for much of this period. I did spend several years snapping wheelchair athletes and organizing the British Road Race Championship. In the year 2000 I was awarded a distinction by the Royal Photographic Society for my portfolio on wheelchair athletes. Most of my pics are digital, using Sony cameras and Sigma lenses. I used to spend many weeks each year with friends in Wales which is close to the Elan Valleys where I got many of my raptor pics. I now get these pictures more closely to home, specially red kites and peregrines. I support my pension by selling my pics, cards, coasters, fridge magnets and key rings etc. at craft fairs, something I wish I had done much earlier in life. I give illustrated talks to clubs and societies on wildlife and other branches of photography that I have been involved in.
