Artist's Description

The Peregrine x Lanner Falcon is a large bird of prey that breeds in Africa, southeast Europe and just into Asia.

The Lanner Falcon is a bird of open country and savanna. It usually hunts by horizontal pursuit, rather than the Peregrine’s stoop from a height, and takes mainly bird prey in flight. It lays 3-4 eggs on a cliff ledge nest, or occasionally in an old stick nest in a tree.

They are bred in captivity for falconry; hybrids with the Peregrine Falcon are also often seen. Merret claimed that the “lanar” lived in Sherwood Forest and the Forest of Dean in England; such populations would seem to derive from escaped hunting birds of the nobility.
