The Peregrine Pushchair

Inspired by my sighting of the Lesser Spotted Hand Drill, a Redditor sent me evidence of yet more multiplicity in the animal kingdom of Leeds. The cunning Peregrine Pushchair was seen patiently waiting for field mice and other suitable prey, perched precariously on a pylon near Leeds/Liverpool canal one winter morning.

Unlike its cousin, the Peregrine Falcon, the Peregrine Pushchair can grow up to 1.5 metres tall and possesses a wing span that can easily accommodate a small child.
