The sight of a murmuration of Starlings is magical but to witness a Peregrine out hunting them is a once in a lifetime experience.

The timing of this is so good with the light perfect in its transition from day to night. The shape of the bird formation couldn't be better, and as for the hunter, icing on cake comes to mind.

Have a GEA
