Posted on

I've just checked the TV pages and there's a programme on BBC2 tonight, Thursday 26 April 2018, at 8pm.

Called Super Fast Falcon it shows the secrets of the peregrine falcon - which is the fastest animal on earth.  Peregrine Falcons can reach speeds of over 200 mph!

Watch the birds at work in the Lake District and the Alps.  The breeder tests his birds' eyesight, speed and pursuit of moving targets. 

Moses the Peregrine Falcon reached speeds of over 100 miles in 2 seconds.   

The programme also tells the story of three falcon chicks growing up on a balcony in Chicago.   Visit the Chicago Peregrine Program's Facebook page here
