Peregrine preparing to take flight (Falco peregrinus)

  • Gleb Berloff
After sitting perched and almost motionless for quite a while, the female peregrine decided ti was enough loitering on the tower and took off, scaring up a cloud of pigeons as she struggled to fly, holding the pigeon she had caught as she did so, somewhere into the direction of King's College. It was at this moment I managed to take this picture. I have never seen the peregrines so cooperative, especially with a fierce storm coming our way now.
