On our way down Kirikee Mountain two weeks ago, we had a strange experience: all of a sudden we heard a whoosh, but saw nothing come past or over us. Whatever it was passed very close to us and at great speed. No gunshot, no engine noise, nothing but a whoosh like the sound of a hose being twirled in the air. There were no signs of any other human presence in our vicinity. Our best guess is that this was a peregrine falcon. Can any Wicklow ornithologists say whether this is likely? Is there anybody else who has been swooped in a similar way?
