         All of these photographs illustrate juvenile Peregrine Falcons Falco peregrinus photographed at a site in London (with the photographer situated some distance away from the nest-site and using a powerful zoom lens to avoid any disturbance of these very special birds). Some of these images are of pairs of juveniles practising exchanges and in several of the photograph (and for the first time in several years of trying) all four of the youngsters, three females and a smaller and more aerially agile male have been captured within the same frame. All the paired flights and practise exchanges are an important part of the learning process that will enable the youngsters to hone their hunting skills. These birds are tremendously exciting to watch when entire families are airborne and chasing one another at breakneck speed! A couple of the images have been cropped as the high-speed action was caught off-centre.
