Artwork Description

“The Peregrine is a cosmopolitan bird of prey.  It is renowned for its speed, reaching speeds of over 320 km/hr during its characteristic hunting stoop, making it the fasted extant member of the animal kingdom.  Reaching maturity at one year, it mates for life and nests in a scrape, normally on cliff edges or, in recent times, on tall human-made structures.  It is a fascinating bird that has come back from being an endangered species.”
