Getting Close….!!

Getting close now …she is slightly more restless and sitting higher at times….it is quite possible that she can sense the movement inside the egg of the new life within…..!!

Afternoon Sun …..!

Yesterday afternoon in glorious sunshine was very quiet then our boy did bring in food which he eventually shared ….there was not much left so not sure she was very impressed!! The eggs should start to hatch 5,6,7, May not easy to choose a date as it took a little time for them to settle once the fourth egg was laid.

So Close…..!

Several people have asked how close the Ravens nest is to the Peregrines so I thought a picture to show was a good idea …..it is quite close 10/12m at most…..they continue to be the grumpy neighbours just about tolerating each other with occasional random disagreements! Mean while life goes on as they both sit on eggs.

Grumpy Neighbours !

The Peregrines took a lot of time this weekend to dive bomb the grumpy neighbours the Ravens ….perhaps now they both have eggs they will concentrate on raising their young it was fascinating to watch they do have respect for one another….this photo really show the difference in size of the male and female….!!
