Young Peregrine Falcon

Young Peregrine Falcon

This picture of a young peregrine falcon was taken in the Scottish Borders by Tweed ghillie, Andrew Rohleder, one of our ArdMoor Experts. The young peregrine was still learning to fly and he was able to get breath-takingly close to capture this picture.

One of the fastest creatures in the animal kingdom, reaching speeds of over 200mph, these are powerful and exciting birds to watch and they are making a comeback.  With steadily rising numbers, Andrew tells us that he is now lucky enough to see peregrines every year on the River Tweed.
