Peregrine Falcon second calendar year - Bent Lane

Quiet morning with nothing much in the moth trap but nice views of a second calendar year Peregrine on Bent Lane. 
It's still got juvenile tail feathers and outer primaries and secondaries but the inner growing primaries and secondaries are adult. The breast looks to be a mix of juvenile streaks and adult barred feathers. 
Looks like it has fed recently as it still has blood on its talons.
