Peregrines again

I promise no more peregrines for a while unless I get something really good. You can't blame me when you have got such a magnificent bird so close to home sometimes flying over it. I just had to post these pics as this is the closest I have got so far.
Still not sure which is which. I think this is the male looking up at the female. Please correct me if I am wrong.


  1. I'm more than happy to keep seeing the Peregrines! One of my absolute favourites!

  2. My top camera set up is out of action for a few days so I am going to struggle a bit with my back-up. Mike.

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.
