From Polishing to Peregrines

Peregrine 2

Mitchells Roberton have used the cleaning services of ABC Professional Office Cleaners of 30 Boylestone Road ,Barrhead , Glasgow for over 30 years. Scott Maxwell the owner of the cleaning company is an enthusiastic ornithologist and photographer.

He was kind enough to share with me some photos  taken of a Peregrine Falcon he has been watching for a while. He had to sit hidden for over four hours before the bird made an appearance but I think the pics are a just reward for his efforts.

Peregrines have suffered illegal killing from gamekeepers and landowners, and been a target for egg collectors, but  better legal protection and control of pesticides ( which indirectly poisoned birds) have helped the population to recover considerably from a low in the 1960s.
