Magpie on the Clock Tower?!

Postiwyd gan Sarah Lewis ar 4 Medi 2009

Another succesfful seaon of peregrine watching has drawn to a close.  Our sadness at the failure of the eggs has been some-what made up for by the excellent views of the adults we have been getting.  The birds have been having a lovely relaxed time of it, preening and dozing on the clock tower.  Both birds look very well fed and in good health, which means that they should be in excellent condition for next breeding season-fingers crossed!

It has been very quiet on the clocktower with little action to report.  However, one day in the final week of the project we had a visit from a very cheeky magpie, who investigated the peregrine nest right under the noses (or should that be ceres!) of both peregrines!  Fortunately for Mr Magpie, neither peregerine noticed him, lost in their own vanity they were too busy preening!  What makes it worse was the fact that the RSPB had just finished explaing that peregrines are one of nature's great predators-thanks guys, made us look like right mugs! 

All that remains is for me to thank you for your interest in this project.  We have met so many enthusiastic people and have heard some fantastic wildlife stories.  Please keep watching those birds!  Hope to see you all next year!
