It has been a successful week, with the birds showing well for the museum visitors. The most spectacular moment came on Friday morning when the adult male peregrine (Gavin to his friends!) returned to the Clock Tower with a tasty seagull to eat! As you can imagine, this didn't go down too well with the local gulls, who attempted to mob Gavin as he arrived home. Luckily, he made it to a nice comfortable ledge where he was able to enjoy his meal in peace.
For the lucky people down below watching through scopes, it really was a WOW moment. And there will be more to come! Our eggs are due to hatch very soon (last year the first chick appeared on the 1st of May) which means more action on the nest ledge, more hunting trips for the adults and lots many more gory feeds to watch!
So why not come along and have your own RSPB WOW moment?! We will be at the Museum Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-4pm.
