Peregrine Falcon

Summer's here (at least for a week) and so it's time to get out and about. I've known about the location of this Peregrine Falcon for quite a while now, and so today, on the hottest day of the year so far, I decided to have a look for myself.  As soon as I had parked up I saw it flying around the chimney.  To the casual eye it could easily be mistaken for a pigeon, but on closer inspection it is unmistakable.

Here's a few shots taken using my new (secondhand) 1.4x teleconverter on a f2.8 300mm lens:

Just to put the bird in context, here's where it hangs out.

What's he looking at?

Ah, babies !

Home alone ?

Imagine this being left on your doorstep.

I also saw this beautiful juvenile Long-tailed Tit
