Yesterday evening there was a Peregrine Falcon on Beach Rd near Avalon 

After seeing the high speed performances of the F1-11's at the airshow 
over the weekend, I was more impressed with the aerial displays that this 
Peregrine Falcon put on for me, especially its ability to snatch a 
dragonfly out of mid air! 

It was the most approachable Peregrine Falcon i'd ever come across too, 
and allowed me to get up nice and close to get some photographs. 

I've put an image up under this weeks 'photo of the week' section  on my 
website, of the Peregrine munching on its dragonfly catch.

Has anyone ever seen Peregrines or any other raptors eating dragonflies
