Falco peregrinus

I went to see the Rousseau exhibition at Tate Modern today (on which possibly more later) and finally saw one of the resident peregrine falcons. Woohoo! It’s the world’s fastest-falling bird, you know.

We’ve some nesting not far from where I live. My brother (who now lives on the other side of the country) used to go see them every weekend.

They’re pretty fab birds. I’ve seen them before elsewhere, but it’s the first time I’ve seen them in central London. They’re only been there for about five years.

No, I haven’t. :(

I’ve seen a toucan hawking for termites, though, which makes up for a lot.

Yes. Now I’m jealous. Are they as pretty in real life as they look in pictures? (silly questions, I know)
