Magnificent polar bird of prey that hunts over the arctic plains
Our Expert Says… "Although there is a worry about the impact of climate change, I'm hopeful that because there is so much habitat available in the high Arctic, the gyrfalcons and peregrines have the space to co-exist and weather the storm. I've had good sightings on trips to Greenland in particular."
The gyrfalcon is the world’s largest falcon and it’s a breeding resident of the Arctic coasts and tundra.
