A falcon is any species of raptor in the genus Falco. The word comes from their Latin name falco, related to Latin falx ("sickle") because of the shape of these birds' wings. Adult falcons have thin tapered wings, which enable them to fly at high speed and to change direction rapidly. Peregrine falcons have been recorded diving at speeds of 200 miles per hour, making them the fastest-moving creatures on Earth. The ‘Alternating Tandem reel’ was devised by Barry Priddey and first used in two of his dances in The Capercaille Book. It is often referred to as a ‘Dolphin reel’ after Barry Skelton used it in several dances such as Pelorus Jack, published in The Dolphin Book. The important point is that 1st couple are dancing in tandem throughout (i.e. one behind the other) but the lead changes every time they turn past their corners.
