Great flying….can be a long wait…..!!

The young ones are doing well taking food from parents in the air sometimes without dropping it……catching food that the parents drop…..not quite got the hang of that…..chasing pigeons around the Cathedral with very little chance of catching them…..but we are learning how to stoop as we play with the pigeons…..!!

Very Successful……!!

Viewing days are over for this season at the Cathedral but the young birds will still be around for the next month or so before they go off to find their own territories. If you are around the city and hear a lot of noise look up above it could well be the young Peregrines in the sky playing tag.The project had over 5,500 people visiting in a 3 week period and was a great success. Pictures will continue to be posted through out the year …..just at a slightly slower pace than of late…..Thanks to all our volunteers for their amazing support and work and to all of you for your continued support….!!!

The Iconic green roof soon to be gone forever loved by sailors and pilots the world over as it made a landmark they could not miss…..wonderful use of colour on the birds probably my last shot of the two young ones with this colour palette……!!
