Peregrine Chicks, Gower Peninsula

17 Mar

Peregrine Chicks, Gower Peninsula

One glorious summer on the Gower Peninsula revealed many treasures. Perched on the edge of a cliff five metres from the footpath sit two Peregrine Chicks. Undetected by half a dozen twitchers dressed in special gear with their special binoculars my stealthy wife, Clare crept up to within a few feet of these beautiful birds armed only with a simple digital camera. Their mother was below them hunting swallows with lethal efficiency.

Having an eye for treasure is what feeds the soul, you don’t need a map, or a piece of fancy equipment, just a mind tuned to the unexpected.
