Business as Usual.

No major alarms were noted over the last few days. On Thursday the adult birds provided a remarkable five separate meals (at least) with Dad doing the majority of the hunting. Not to be outdone, Mum amazed those watching during the afternoon by setting off to the north of the Cathedral and returning with a feral pigeon less than three minutes later. It’s no surprise that with such a fine supply of food the young birds by Sunday evening had grown ever larger, shed most of their downy feathers and were looking very much as they will when they hopefully fledge, in a week or two.
