Peregrine - Karl Egressy

Peregrine – Karl Egressy

This afternoon an immature Peregrine put up a small ball of clinking starlings as it passed quickly overhead at treetop height near where the Crowe River enters the north end of Belmont Lake n/e of Havelock. Glad I looked when I heard the starlings, as it is usually one of the local Cooper`s Hawks or Merlins that cause said reaction from the starlings in this area. It headed out over the lake, but not before alarming every now-nesting pair of crows it passed along the way. It was heading in a s/e direction.
