Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus)
Peregrines are not difficult to spot, because as soon as they see you approaching, they set up an incredibly loud and distinctive screeching racket, which you cannot mistake. There were three of them flying above my head, so I lay back on the clifftop and tried to get a photograph. This is typical Peregrine habitat, with cliff ledges to nest on, and a plentiful supply of food in the shape of other birds nesting nearby.
