2012-04-22 SGNP, Mumbai

Taken these pics at the Kanheri caves inside the sanjan Gandhi National Park.

These small raptors were hunting for insects on the flight.
There were 2 individuals which were seen just as we were climbing the caves.

Just as we reached the top of the caves two more individual was seen hunting.
But i am not sure whether these were the same or not.

First Individual - Mostly Peregrine Falcon

Second individual - Mostly Amur falcon due to its  different underwing pattern.(Unfortunately the pics are not sharp)

Please help me iding these raptors.
