A couple of raptors


A Mountain Hawk Eagle east of town a couple of days ago.....................


Not a bird I see so often and it was fairly low too (although it is still a heavy crop).



There were a couple of White-tailed Eagles around too and this young Peregrine which was trying to nab some of the many Kittiwakes around...............


It was flying too fast for any decent photos (and my settings were all wrong anyway as I'd been concentrating on kittiwakes in bright light)...............but I grabbed a couple as it whizzed by.
