Whilst out yesterday I photographed one of these Raptors soaring the thermals and looking for prey, some love these highly evolved creatures and others despise them. One of my favourite birds is the Peregrine Falcon, along with the Sparrowhawk with its supreme flying skills. The Peregrine is the fastest flying bird in the world and has been recorded in its stoop (or dive) at over two hundred miles per hour, in fact Frightful a captive bred Peregrine was clocked at 242 miles per hour http://video.nationalgeographic.com/video/player/animals/birds-animals/birds-of-prey/falcon_peregrine_velocity.html
