Rarely do I catch both the male and female together. Its either one or the other. This leads me to believe that they have a nest nearby with young in it. First the male will feed then the female will arrive and have her lunch while the male stands by.
 She has what she wants.
Then flies off to the nest to feed her young. The trouble is that when she does this she disappears from view and I don't see her again.

    1. Thankyou Ana, I visit them most days mainly because I don't have to get out of the car to photogragh them. Mike.

  2. Never the less you got some great shots of both male and female Peregrines. So sorry you have been troubled with gout Pain, but glad the medication is helping. Take care!:)

    1. As I told Ana I visit the peregrines because I don't have to get out of the car and keep off my foot. It has got very much better in the last couple of weeks. Take care, 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.
