    Description
    More from Ham Wall RSPB, this time I captured the Peregrine racing through the murmuration. Peregrines are supreme hunters but they are confused bty the murmaration. The Starlings reacte to the attack by closing ranks and confusing the predator, simular to schools of sardine ( bait balls ) Zebra's ( black and white stripes) natures own defence. Fascinating to watch let alone capture. A remarkable evening.
