Welcome to dickforsman.com

It's been a while since my last posting, life being just too busy. I've done a couple of trips up to the far north and the above image is from the shores of the Barent's Sea only some days ago. A 2nd cy male "Arctic" Peregrine has just seized a Common Tern and takes of with the victim, fully alive. In seconds it is being attacked by fellow terns, which force the falcon lower and lower over the water. In the end the falcon has to release its grip and the terns falls into the water with a splash. The falcon gains height again, and so does the tern! It flies off happily and joins the crowd of the upset breeding colony.
