On Day Solo is progressing well, even though ‘food on the wing’ seems to be in short supply since the big snow storm over the weekend (even with really wonderful weather this week), but no-one seems to be overly worried. Swift took a few breaks today leaving Solo to mind the eyrie. This mild weather is proving to be far better for the chick than in both previous seasons when we’ve experienced extremely hot & uncomfortable weather, not designed to make life easy in a crammed eyrie. This new enlarged roost design is proving its benefits though, with lots of room & better gravel base as peregrine benefits, and for us we have far superior camera angles.
For those viewers local to Orange we’re showing FalconCam Project posters and information out at Australian National Field Days, tomorrow and Thursday, via the Nature Conservation trust and CMA tents.
