Who blinks first...

Bella has been in a staring competition with a pigeon!

The brave pigeon was on the nesting tray with Bella for nearly 3 minutes in total, before deciding to fly upwards and away from danger.

This footage was taken from camera 2, which isn't very well positioned with most of the scene being obscured by the louvres. There is also no audio.

Both Bella and CR are often to be seen on the Abbey tower, mostly at first light, and occasionally in the evening at dusk as well. If they are both there, then they call to each other continually, so they are quite easy to spot.
