On this day (January 13th)...............


January 13th 2014.

A female Peregrine at Sawara 4 years ago today. It briefly shared the same hunting ground as that year's Gyrfalcon although I never saw them interact. It had obviously just killed and eaten something judging by the blood on its belly................

The background is an old disused lighthouse; not a public toilet exterior.

That day was one of the the coldest I've experienced in south Hokkaido. Minus 19 and it was windy too making it feel even colder.

  1. THAT's cold ! The Peregrine certainly looks like a hardened killer in this shot...

    1. It seems to be weighing up whether or not it could possibly hunt and eat the human pointing a camera at it...........
