Another day another Peregrine!

There were three Black Redstarts around the paddock this afternoon, but all cunningly managed to stay out of range of my camera.

This adult Peregrine was a little more cooperative and did pose long enough for a photo. After the pictures of a juvenile I though it would be good to show the how different an adult looks. Gone are the course streaks down the chest and in their place are a series of quite subtle wavy bars. I think that this is a male, with the extensive white throat, but without the larger female to compare the size I am not 100% certain.
