This Peregrine Falcon put on the most amazing show and seemed to be flying just for the sheer joy of it. It reminded me of a Spitfire beating up an airfield as it hurtled about the sky.
It was moving so fast it was difficult to keep it in the viewfinder but by pulling back to 150mm focal length and spinning on the spot I managed to get a few worthwhile shots.
This was my favourite as I managed to get a catchlight in the eye and show the bird with its beak open calling.
(I've cloned out the transmitter and wire from it back.)
