Been sick as a dog the last couple of days but somehow made it out to New Brighton park (next to PNE and Hastings Park racetrack) this morning and finally caught up with the Gyrfalcon perched high up on the Viterra building next to bridge.
Unfortunately my camera wasn't set up when i
first saw it fly and attempt to catch a pigeon in flight, came close
but then flew back up high and i settled for a few shots before it flew
off again and was lost from sight.
a real beauty of a bird
needless to say, looks were of the long-range variety.
