An immature Peregrine and a Large Billed Crow  in Yakumo  2 years ago today. The falcon was being mobbed by a group of crows but to my eyes it seemed to be enjoying the attention as it led them on a wild falcon chase for a full 10 minutes.......................

I was on the same bridge a few days ago and saw almost nothing let alone a falcon chase........

Thanks for clicking this link.......


  1. Excellent action pictures. I saw a peregrine take a bird earlier in the week (I think a pigeon) but it was far away and I didn't have my camera. You did very well to get such perfect focus in all the shots.

  2. Those shots are just brilliant, especially given the space between them and both birds in focus.

  3. Thanks for the comments, I got lucky with this bird that's for sure............

  4. Stu I answered your question about Corn Bunts on my blog. They are still struggling alomg locally, numbers at a precarious level but we always seem to get a couple of flocks in the new year, mainly Over Wyre. it's probably related to more difficulty in finding food in late winter.

    1. Hi Phil, yes I saw that..............I haven't seen any on my occasional trips back home for a long time now.......
