Peregrines growing up

I havn't paid many visits to the peregrine family for a few weeks because of computer and camera troubles which I may cover on a different post. As you can see their plumage is changing colour and they are beginning to look more mature.
There were four chicks, since fledging two seem to have moved off some distance and are not seen that often while the other two have moved from the nest site and prefer to roost in some tall trees. All are being harder to find. 


  1. Hello Mike!:) Super shots of the young Peregrines. They are becoming independent, and looking very handsome. I hope your troubles are now over. Have a good week. Take care!:)

  2. Hi Sonjia, My computer is fixed, I just live in a bad area which is my only problem now. My camera tale is a different story which I shall post about soon if I don't get any satisfaction from Sony. 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.
