Peregrines

 It has been fascinating watching the young peregrines mature, growing and learning to fend for themselves. One of them chased a pidgeon for the first time this evening, it lost the race of course, but next time it may be a different matter.

  1. Hello Mike!:) I have been absent for a few weeks, and in another three, will be off to the Algarve for a short break, so I have a lot of catching up to do. I love these shots of the Peregrines. I believe more and more peregrines are nesting in the cities. I have missed your other posts so over the next few days will try to catch up, and learn where these are. All the best, hope all is well!:)

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.
