False alarm

Both Mum and Dad were sunning themselves on the Cathedral late yesterday afternoon.  Mum inspected the nest turret and Dad watched with interest and then disappeared from her prying eyes by perching on the ledge below the south west turret – unusually low perch for him!  The presence of the rather large rickety ladder which has now been in place for a while on the west side of the spire seems not to be a problem for the birds.For those of you who heard the rumour that there was a dead peregrine on the side of the road by the Prebendal playing fields (Chartres Avenue) don’t panic – after investigation it was a juvenile gull which had probably chanced his life trying to get food from the middle of the road!!
