#302 Walking with raptors

It was a bit grim out there today.  If I had an image to share from today, it would be grey and misty.

As it happens though, I have a couple of images from yesterday that I only got around to processing today – so at least I can justifiably share something other than a picture of ‘grey’.

I had plenty of shots on the Canon from yesterdays wander around the coast path, icluding a fair number of raptor (bird of prey) flight shots. I didn’t catch the peregrine, although I did see them scooting by, low along the undercliff at Houns Tout.  I had better luck with the kestrels and buzzards though, as they drifted on by..

The kestrel flew by at quite some speed..

There is something about birds of prey that makes watching them so rewarding.  They really are the masters of the sky.
