Peregrines on the Clock Tower

June 2009

No Second Clutch

Posted by Sarah Lewis on 13 June 2009

There is no second clutch of eggs despite courtship behaviour from both of the peregrines. They have been avoiding the original nest for some time now and are still using the second nest on the east side of the clock tower as a base.

 The birds have been sitting in the more shady spots because of the hot weather we've been having recently (often, annoyingly, just out of sight of our scopes on City Hall Lawn!) but we've still been getting some great views of them.

 A highlight of this past week was the pair tucking into a pigeon and at one point they both fought over it! 

 The adults will stay around for the whole of the summer and will continue to pose for the camera, which is providing high quality images of the peregrines and is giving us lots of fun with the windscreen wipers!!
