Reaching Speeds of Over 200mph!

Peregrine falcons stoop out of the sky onto their unsuspecting prey. This species can reach speeds of over 200mph which makes them the fastest living thing on our planet. It’s lovely to have our largest, native falcon as part of the Coda Falconry team and we are looking forward to seeing him tearing around our flying arena as part of our public flying demonstrations.
