Managed to get this one this morning, its a young peregrine. I must have watched these for 3 hrs stunning birds. I did manage some shots of the father dropping a rabbit off but they came out a bit fuzzy due to the speed of them plus the distance. I must have taken over a 100 shots but think this is the best one. im over the moon made my easter. I did struggle as it was early morning quite cloudy and dark cliffs so messed with the settings quite a bit. i might go back up later see if i can get a better shot or one of the parents.
