Mum peregrine

With such a beautiful sunny day today I thought we could take a drive into the country and find somewhere nice for a spot of lunch. Having achieved this and on our way home we stopped to see if there was any peregrine activity. Not activity as such but there was mum sitting on her favourite patch of grass sunning herself, by the debris scattered around it looked as though she had just had lunch too. As usual this shot was taken from the drivers seat of the car.


  1. Hello Mike!:) So pleased you had some sunshine, and enjoyed your day out with the added bonus of seeing the female Peregrine, and taking a really good shot.

    1. Hi Sonjia, It certainly was a good day found a nice little place for lunch too. Take care Mike.

  2. Hello Mike, thanks for stopping by! Have a good day!:)

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.
