Peregrine in the shadows269 viewsTihis isn't a detailed shot but shows very well the way that a peregrine blends in so well with its surroundings. Every colour on it is also on the rocks and shadows of the cliff, even the yellow of the beak and feet is also the colour of lichen on the rocks

streeeetch248 viewsYes I now you cant see its head but this shows the amazingly stretch that a bittern has. Before taking the November 2007 photos my idea of a bittern was exactly as it is shown in books, a static bird looking up and the real thing is nothing like that. Looking up is rest or wary the hunting bird changes shape in an almost unbelievable way.

Peregrine Falcon229 viewsThis a flapping flight not a glide and on the down beat so the wings look much shorter than they really are. The glide shows a much more falcon shaped profile.
