Anyone who watches the web cam will have noticed it has moved …..or at least the view is different . That is because of all the work going on at the cathedral . It was a big decision and a gamble to move it as being in its original site was probably not going to work . We are a long way from success but on Monday caught by Mark from the RSPB both birds were spotted in the New Nest Site ……Very good news …..we can but hope and watch to see what unfolds…….
Hi to you all,
The 2018 peregrine has started! The camera is now turned on but we don’t expect to see much action just yet. We have been warned that there are a few glitches so it may be turned off from time to time – just try again later. Also there is a new microphone which will, hopefully, give us the sounds we want to hear instead of the buzzing we got last year!! Both birds have been seen around in spite of all the scaffolding around the east end of the cathedral.
Here’s to another great season!
On a cold winters day both birds were around perhaps a little quizzical about all the work going on below but both very much in residence…….Happy New Year All ……First post of 2018.
Still very good views of the youngsters as they learn the tricks of the trade could still be coming in to roast at night for another 6/10 weeks less and less during the day but all are fine to the best of our knowledge …,,,
The webcam is now turned off as the peregrine juveniles have now fledged. The webcam will return in 2018.
This does not mean that there will be no more more posts!! Keep watching this space for more amazing photographs of the juveniles as they learn how to survive.
There are great views of the youngsters learning the tricks of the trade at the Cathedral at the moment….should be good viewing for the next two to three weeks…..you just need a little patience and time on your side …..well worth the wait……The camera on the nest will be turned off on Monday 26th June as the youngsters rarely go to it now …..back on for next season……
Another buzzard drifted into their air space and was swiftly dispatched…..this one got away……
No longer can the parents sit down and have a quiet snack without being interfered with…..
Three in the air playing today…….all is well
It was really great at the Cathedral last night ….there are gaps in between but it is well worth the wait……
