Still there…

I was watching both birds sunning themselves on the cathedral this afternoon, and quite a few people walked by, asking if they’re still around, is mum back yet, when will they have eggs, etc.  Well, as far as I can tell, mum never left – I’ve seen her and dad together several times over the Autumn/Winter, usually just sitting comfortably – no doubt enjoying the peace and quiet before the next brood disturbs them!

We expect courtship behaviour (dad feeding mum etc) to start soon, in few weeks time, then mating/egg laying during March.  All being well, eggs normally hatch towards the end of April.

Watch this space for updates…
