Peregrine Falcon painting by Roy Aplin

On the Edge - Peregrine Falcon

Size: 18 x 22 inches
Latin name: Falco peregrinus

Available as an Original Painting and Limited Edition Prints

This spectacular bird of prey is often seen hunting along the cliffs of the Jurassic coastline in Dorset and further inland, as far as Corfe Castle village in Purbeck. I have even spotted one by the church of St. Edward close to the square.

This painting was inspired by a memorable sighting by the sea at Winspit of a male Peregrine chasing a Raven from it's territory, rather than the reverse!
