Hi,i was watching what i was sure was a pair of Peregrines the other day when i noticed one was catching what must have been insects(it was quite far and only had them through bins),do Peregrines catch and eat insects on the wing or were they Hobbies?

Peregrines will "hawk" insects from time to time and will transfer them from their talons to beak in the same way as a Hobby will.

For example, there are accounts of them catching Cicadas and Stone flies in america.
