I had a walk down to Kenidjack Valley for an hour last night and encountered three Raptors within the space of thirty minutes. The Juvenile or sub-adult Peregrine had hit a Magpie and made short work of eating its quarry. Photographs not impressive as I was photographing the Peregrine through a hedge so as not to disturb it feeding. It is amazing what you see when out for a short walk.

Peregrine leftovers, not sure if I quite got the eye glint.


  1. Lovely set,like it lots.
    It makes a change to see Magpie on the menu.

  2. Thats a great set Sam, really do like Raptors and good to see one having dinner. niceee.

  3. Great shots Sam. Poor Magpie but it's a good reason not to cull them eh :-) Nature has it's own way and I'm happy with that.

  4. Great shots I agree with john not very often you see a Magpie for lunch, hope you had a good holiday, look forward to plenty more great photos.

  5. Well looks like you had a fantastic thirty minutes on your walk! Good work and welcome back.
