What a pleasant surprise..! As I opened my front door early yesterday afternoon (and during the following week) I received a rapturous welcome from my closest high-rise neighbour.

The peregrine falcon was back! Haven’t heard or seen him in weeks and have missed him during the past few weeks.

He gave me enough time to get back inside, grab a camera and then posed for an impromptu photo shoot.
Watching me closely, content and safe. I left a few minutes later as he was still happy and high. So was I…

During the last week he perched / slept outside the bathroom window. Needless to say, the only light that went on ‘in any close proximity to him’. was the fridge light.
