My first 2008 Peregine!!! 21/2/08

Above: Peregrine Falcon, poor quality phone-scoped record shot, handheld and with scope leant against my knee.

Exactly one hour ago as I write this, I saw a Peregrine Falcon near where I live (because its February I feel that it could be a potential nesting site and don't want to give too much away). The bird gave good views for ten minutes from 3:00pm to 3:10pm before it flew off. I got some poor quality phone-scoped photos and a video (see photo above). As far as I know it is the first for where it was seen and I'm very pleased to have seen it.

Note: The programme I use for birdnut.me.uk is not opening so I will have to re-install it when I have the time. For now though, I cannot update it.
