Skyfall Peregrines

Škocjanski zatok NR: spent a nice hour just after sunset at the reserve, where the highlight came in the form of two hunting Peregrines over the freshwater area. They both performed some amazing hunting displays as well as some stoops against Starlings. Quite entertaining show (maybe not for the Starlings).
Nothing much of interest otherwise, although a Common Crane was seen yesterday evening in the lagoon. Today it was obviously gone.
However a Water Rail crossing the path was funny to see, along with at least 4 other individuals singing in the reedbed.

And to round up the day I had a nice finale:
 
Really cool movie.
