Peregrine falcon

This morning it was an early start at the Vis-mig ( visible migration) watch point. Migration in our area in early September is just starting and it’s always nice, like this morning to find the first moving Chaffinch of the autumn or the first Meadow Pipit as it moves south for the winter.

However, the the highlight this morning was a faint call…Peregrine. And sure enough a Peregrine Falcon was flying high moving N/E.

What was interesting was below the falcon was a group of BH gulls moving south. The falcon closed it’s wings and dived. However, the gulls had spotted the danger and scattered and the falcon swooped back up and carried on it’s journey.

A Common Whitethroat and 4 Chiffchaffs were grounded.
