O.k. this isn't going to win "Wildlife Photograph of the Year" - but if you look closely you should be able to see the black and white bird sitting on a post. Take my word for it, it's a Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus). There are quite a few different raptors that frequent the College Lake Nature Reserve - the now inevitable Red Kites of course, and Buzzards and Kestrels - but also the Peregrine is a regular, and until they left for sunnier climes a few weeks ago, Hobbies were also darting about.
