I found this scene extraordinary, not that the peregrine was so close to the rabbit, the peregrine would be little threat to it, but the rabbit was half way up a cliff with no signs of how it got there. It must have fallen over the cliff edge, some 100ft down and survived and there it was having a meal quite unconcerned on how it was going to get back up, or down as the case may be.


  1. Hi Mike!:) This is, an unusual sighting. I fear the rabbit may come to a sticky end!

  2. Hi Sonjia, I thought so too, but 24hours on and it is still there.

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.
