Feathers flying

Apologies for the lack of updates recently. The problem is that there has been precious little going on. The cameras have only recorded pigeon visits to the nesting tray. All rather disappointing after all that has happened over the last few years.

I have had reports of a pair of peregrines being seen over the Tewkesbury Nature Reserve recently, and there have been lots of prey remains around the Abbey churchyard. A woodcock carcass was a recent finding, showing that the peregrines hunt at night with the assistance of the artificial lights in the town.

It wasn't until today that I caught a glimpse of one of the birds.

I think this is Bella eating her prey in the water chute on the east side of the tower, sending feathers flying in the breeze.

Apparently it's not too late in the season yet, so fingers crossed.
