Rather too quiet...

There have been no further sightings of peregrines on the camera monitoring activity on the nesting tray. The female is often to be seen on the tower, but she seems to be on her own.

On the top of the tower in the lead chutes that are used as a "dining table", there are often some prey remains, and last Sunday morning there was one carcass which I think was a common gull.

What was I doing on the top of the tower?
Untangling the flag!

Get off my tray!

Camera 2 caught this early morning action the other day.

It looks like CR landed on the nesting tray, only for Bella to send him away....

This may well be because she is letting him know that it is her territory!

Getting to know each other again.

CR and Bella have been renewing their friendship again!

CR usually sits right on the edge of the tray, leaving Bella to occupy the rest of the nesting area.

Camera 3 gives a closer view of CR (there is no sound on this video clip).

Looking promising

For the first time since December, the camera has captured a peregrine. Not one, but two!

CR is on the right, and the female (probably Bella) is on the left with her back to the camera.

I took this snap shot of the screen of the recorder with my phone, but unfortunately I then accidentally deleted the video footage!

One bird short of a pair?

The female is around most of the time, but I've not seen a male for ages.
Neither has the video camera.

I was hoping to have better news by now....
