The peregrines in the area are certainly keeping us guessing at the moment!
There were more fresh feathers on the top
of Tewkesbury Abbey tower again today, so which of the birds is eating there is a mystery.
Alice has been seen regularly by Bob Telford at Bishop's Cleeve, but there have been a few evenings when she has not been seen. She was there last night, but Christopher Robin hasn't been seen for months.
Fortunately there are signs of activity at Christchurch in Cheltenham where he fledged in 2010. Both the male and female are around, so things are looking good for 2015!
Here is a close up taken by Dave Pearce a couple of days ago of CR's dad perching on the pinnacle.
I saw a peregrine this morning on the Abbey tower, and again this evening. Both times they were on top of the water chute on the north side of the tower and difficult to see well enough to hazard a guess as to whether it was male or female. Both times, they were feeding too.
(Not a very flattering camera angle!)
Interestingly, Bob Telford also reports seeing DX at Bishop's Cleeve last night and again tonight.
Does this mean that we have two birds in the area again?
