Peregrines and badgers

One bird I love seeing on my local patch is the Peregrine falcon. It’s not often I get a glimpse of any, but last week there was one being bothered by a Buzzard.

Pigeons make up the main part of a peregrine falcon’s diet, something there is plenty of on my local patch. Although I’m hoping the pair of wood pigeons nesting in the tree outside my window stay safe.

Today it’s finally been raining a decent amount. Not great for taking photos which I was hoping to do as I’ve spotted three hares that are spending time close to me, but great for the wildlife.

When it’s been dry for a while we get a couple of badgers visiting to take a drink. This one always seems to chatter to itself.

    Glad to hear of your Peregrines. I’ve been watching a female spend winter on local steeple, so as to be sure to keep her same nest for this year. On March 21st male reappeared. She’s now sitting. Clip, not my own of last year, by woman who lives opposite. Impossible to see chicks from the ground till they’re big.
