Rotherhithe Peregrine

I'd been tipped off about a Peregrine favouring the gas holder near Rotherhithe station and having been at the tip yesterday, didn't manage to get out until today. I only had a brief hour spare to go birding, but this was a nice highlight.

adult Peregrine Rotherhithe, London 25th January 2015
Interestingly, the bird bears an orange/red ring - according to Dave Morrison (London's most consistent Peregrine enthusiast - see here), this bird is either an adult ringed pre-2011 from this area or a migrant from the Charing Cross area. I'll need to try and get the digits of the ring next time...
