Peregrine Falcon

February - Sheena

A Peregrine Falcon, perched high up on a church tower, looking for its next prey.
Our walks were curtailed by my breaking of a toe (again). Ouch! Thankfully after a few days I was able to hobble short distances, so we visited a local town including church grounds. Spotting remains of crows on the pathway our attention was drawn upwards, to the church tower where we glimpsed a Peregrine Falcon sitting on its nesting site. Thankfully the Falcon flew to perch on a more visible spot, where this shot was taken. Hopefully it will successfully breed and there will be chicks to see soon. Apologies for the poor clarity of the image.
