What amazing weather this weekend!!! Needless to say the youngsters were feeling the heat and for much of the time are hiding from the camera in the small amount of shade in the turret. Mum and Dad continue to bring in food but the chicks are now starting to feed for themselves when neither parent is looking. Dad’s aim is now very good as he drops food into the turret rather than delivering by hand – so to speak. Perhaps he is afraid of having his head bitten off for some misdemeanour. Saturday saw a red kite fly over the cathedral but it was too high to invite any interest from our pair. Sunday however saw a spectacular defence of the nest when a buzzard strayed too close.
