Peregrine Falcon

The peregrine’s breeding range includes land regions from the Arctic tundra to the tropics. It can be found nearly everywhere on Earth, except extreme polar regions, very high mountains, and most tropical rainforests; the only major ice-free landmass from which it is entirely absent is New Zealand. This makes it the world’s most widespread raptor and one of the most widely found wild bird species.

Among all the species shot in LRK, this had to be my favourite. Hence, a separate post to honour this legend. Found either on sand mounds or on the ground, this raptor when hungry attacks other birds before they even notice it.

The difference between clicking from the vehicle and from the ground is explained in this next slider.

This is the closest we managed to get to this beauty.

We were lucky enough to witness an Egret kill as well.

All in all, very lucky to have completed 6 sessions with Vipul with so much learning. The moment we finished our last session, the clouds turned dark and it poured non-stop. Heard that with this kind of rain, the Rann will be shut for couple of days as one won’t be able to drive through it.
