Sunshine, Waves and Part of a Peregrine

This morning started with the loudest and longest rumble of thunder that I think I have ever heard! By the time the sun had risen though all was fine and the skies were blue...ish!
So it was back to the cliffs to watch the waves hitting the cliffs, but being able to take more photographs, unlike yesterday.
The waves were incredible as was the noise as they cannoned into the cliffs, this is one of the many joys of living so close to the sea, being surrounded by amazing sea sounds!
All of a sudden the pigeons scattered and unmistakeable, slate-grey, shape of a Peregrine flew straight into the cliffs. The next hour was spent waiting for it to finish preening itself and become more visible.
This did not happen and as the clouds hid the Sun, it was time to make a hasty exit.
