Kent













We have just returned from a week in Kent a new county for us and an enjoyable weeks stay.

At a well known destination in the county we saw Peregrine falcon flying, we were high above on the cliffs and dropped down to see if I could get any flight shots. We did not see them again flying level with the cliff tops but from afar I saw one bird eating on a ledge, I did not have my converter so the shots are 500mm focal length, much zoomed and cropped. The vertical shot is to give a bit of perspective to the height of the cliff behind.

We then saw three falcons on a shoreline rock and I managed to get one flying out over the shore line, it gives an impression of scale against the sea.

A Peregrine, your are lucky to see it Mike and to get some shots as well is special. They are amazingly fast and usually very high.
