Hi Luke...How can we help you prove that our feathered friends are amazing? By posting pictures here?
Add amazing photos of birds! And tell the world amazing facts about them.
The Peregrine can stoope up to 2060 mph!!!!!
I think you have one too many naughts in there Luke. At that rate it would cover over half a mile in a second !! The record is 242mph recorded in 1995 (according to Wikipedia)
I am a volunteer at the Date With Nature's chichester Peregrine's and when I was reading in the book plubished by the RSPB about Peregrine's that what it said. It also said that one been know to take out a swan!!!
I'm sorry Luke but it must be a misprint - If you do a Google search they all point to around 245mph. At the speed you quote they would not be able to physically pull out of a stoop.
hat geo wild had a program on last year when they where recored at 257,8 mph round it up and you get 260mph, (i watched the highlights on the web).
But Luke you said

I wouldn't have queried 15 mph difference
Iv just rung the rspb and they said that they have been recorded at 280mph
2060mph . . . Concords cruising speed was around 1200mph at 60,000 feet . . . . and I think the Blackbird was only capable (Temperature limited to 427 CIT ) of 2160mph (Mach 3.3) at 85,000 feet, As good as he peregrins design is I do suspect a misprint
sorry got it all rong! I ment 260 miles per hour not 2060 mph
