Can somebody verify the Whinchat. My books do not show a juvenile or female, I am sure this is a juvenile or Female Whinchat. It was showing on the tops of the barley at the start of the rough track.
Whinchat ( I think it is anyway)Peregrine enjoying his breakfast.
As I approached the sharp bend on the rough track I heard lots of screaching. I thought they were raptors but was not sure. Then I started seeing birds swooping. I got to the bend and found a Buzzard on the ground with three Peregrines. They were dive bombing the bird and eventually the Buzzard got up and flew off. This left a single Peregrine to tuck into whatever was caught by whatever. A second bird did land and this was was not as dark but larger. Was the first bird (see photo) a juvenile and the second bird the mother and it was the parents teaching a juvenile to hunt? I don't know but it was great fun watching the birds for a while. After all of this fun it was back home to carry on repairing the car and clean out a couple of sheds.
