I was on top of the Abbey tower this afternoon watching Bella and CR performing some amazing flying tricks.

Unfortunately, I only had my phone to record the display, so apologies for the quality.

First is Bella flying from right to left, then CR dive bombed from above!

Same as last year

It looks like Bella and Christopher Robin are behaving in pretty much the same way as last year.

After some early activity, a quiet period meant that when they finally got together, they were too late to breed.

The camera saw them both for the first time in months the other day...

Nothing to report

I am wondering if the last video published on 17th March is significant.

Since Bella chased CR away, no peregrine activity has been seen by the camera. I think the chances of any seeing breeding this year have gone.

I have seen one roosting on the tower, and by its size I think it is Bella.

The peregrines could be around though - it's just that the camera hasn't seen them...
