Migii has flown off but will no doubt be seen around the neighbourhood for many more weeks before being pushed away by mum and dad. So far we’ve only had one vague sighting since Tuesday’s huge milestone for the new peregrine, but now both mum and dad are able to find space to return to their roost for a rest and recuperation. We have to presume that Migii is enjoying life on the wing, with plenty of space to explore and no doubt lots of new creatures to begin hunting soon, with help from both parents.
By all accounts though this is certainly not the last we’ll see of Migii and we anticipate many more weeks (approx 6-8) of the youngster hanging around the water tower and in the neighbouring trees whilst learning the art of predation and feeding.
The local Prime TV new crew kindly visited us again today for a follow-up story and true to form the little star who put Orange campus on the raptor map was nowhere to be seen (or heard). We pulled up short in describing Migii as “delinquent”! The TV news item will hopefully be on local TV screens on Monday evening and posted on this website soon afterwards. Thanks to Amy Sheehan and camera crew!
