Lade - 1000hrs - cold, grey, sw3 - Watched a large (presumed female) Peregrine over the airport diving amongst a Lapwing flock in an attempt to separate one out. This went on for about 5 minutes before the raptor gave up and drifted over towards the bird reserve. Three Goldeneyes on south pit and Cetti`s Warbler calling from the willows.
