Peregrine Falcons

Finally got around to going up to Alton and getting some shots of the Peregrine Falcons that are nesting there. Saturday was a wet day and I only saw one of the adults. Today went up and met some fellow photogs out shooting the nest also. Got to see both parents and one of the three chicks. It was very overcast today so the light wasn’t great but still got a few halfway decent shots. They are beautiful birds.
