Peregrine nest ?

I passed the peregrines today and noticed a bit off action, so always having my camera with me I stopped the car and and went for a climb. It was wet and slippery so I decided discretion was the better part of valour and didn't go too far. I was near enough to catch this bird about to land on a ledge. On loading it on to the computer I noticed a few twigs. I wonder if this is their new nest site.

    1. I think so, They never seem to sit more than about 10ft from this spot.

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.
