First - a health check. These birds are protected under Schedule 1. All images are taken from a public place that the Peregrine have accepted people to be walking in and pose no threat to them.
The birds have settled now. The sequence below was taken over more than one day but I have put them together to compile the story so far.
With the contractors out of the way, both birds perched on the pylons. Here is the male.
and the female.
The size difference is very noticeable. The female being about 1/3 bigger than the male. This is more apparent in a later image in this series.
When the female is hungry, she calls out and the male calls out in reply. He then dutifully flies off in search of birds to feed the female. This happens both on the pylon and at the nest site.
The female flies over to the nest site and waits.
The male returns with prey in his talons and calls out.
The female responds.
The male then flies to the nest site.
drops off the prey and flies back to the pylon.
I think she is saying thank you as the male flies off
Comments etc welcome as always.
