Peregrine long shot

Peregrines have nested on this ledge for around 9 years now and it appears the female is incubating again this year. Taken from the public highway around 200yds away with Nikon P900 at 2000mm equivalent setting.

Hi David -

Thanks. It seems she has her eye on you.

I hope you post some more as the story unfolds.

Re: Peregrine long shot

Yes, although I can't see her with the naked eye and only just with the binos she's watching me carefully - such incredible eyesight they have! Hope to gat more shots as time goes on, they failed last year but fledged 4 the years before so fingers crossed.
