Observation date: 16 Jun 2016
Shore birds are typically the main diet of the peregrine falcon, but when June rolls around for about four weeks, the young Western gull chicks are the main entree.
The following is but a sample of what I am talking about. In the four to five hours that I spend each day, I observed in a four day period eighteen baby gulls brought in by the adults to feed their young and themselves.

When I leave the “rock” there are still eight more hours of daylight that I do not observe! It is possible that in four full days, each with fourteen hours of light, this number could be doubled very easily.
Happy trails, Bob
Item: I forgot to mention, in the same four day period, five small shore birds were also brought in!
