Filmed this afternoon on the roof of my house. I looked out the window and saw feathers floating around, and heard all sorts of activity on the roof. So I went outside and found myself staring face to face with this formidable predator. Dashed back in to get camera and managed to get a few shots. The peregrine actually dropped the bird off the roof as he was mobbed by seagulls and crows.

  1. When I read you'd seen a peregrine on your roof, I was sure it was going to turn out to be yet another sparrowhawk. But surprisingly it wasn't! Lovely clip.
    Any idea if this is one of the pair that used to use St Michaels in Exeter?
