Seeing off the opposition

Around 11.30 this morning he started making a terrific sqwauking and looking skyward.  Plently of angry posing and lots of angry noise until we saw the reason – another peregrine!!!  As it got close he took off after it like a Bat out of Hell and chased it off  in a southeasterly direction with some very fancy flying.  He returned about 15 mins later (having chased the intruder a very long way off – it could have been one of last years’ juveniles) made several passes around the spire and of course in front of the missus (showing off I suspect – no reaction from her though!!) and disappeared up to his favourite spot on the north side of the spire.
