Out west


The roads were a bit nasty and frozen this morning so we headed west where the sun was shining.................


One of the Peregrines was on their usual clifftop. I climbed up a cliff opposite and set up my camera hoping something interesting would happen.................


It was cold and windy and the falcon was badly backlit................

It didn't do much though. It shuffled around a bit...............



It took a dump a couple of times.................


But mostly it just sat there..................


Stellers and White-tailed Eagles flew overhead as did a Common Buzzard but not much else around. Brambling. Rustic Bunting and Buff-bellied Pipit were all briefly seen so at least there are a few smaller passerines around.............

  1. You are very fortunate to have these easily accessible coastal Peregrine Falcons.

  2. Very nicely composed portraits, Stuart. Handsome poses on a craggy rock are perfect for a peregrine. Thanks for your comment on my blog.

  3. Ha, ha. So much for you Mr Price. Good that you can drive for a few miles and see them so close.

    1. They do seem more confiding than in England where I've only ever seen them in flight I think.........
