I have been trying for over a year to capture this Falcon on camera.
According to our local paper it was born and reared in captivity,it is a cross breed, the result of a Peregrine and another type of Falcon. Since escaping it has stayed in the area.

Looks like a cross between a Lanner and a Peregrine to me, well captured either way as this isn't an easy shot to get anywhere near right.
