In the middle of a very wet week in Orange (ref. weather links down to the right) it seems dinner on the wing is proving a challenge. This morning Swift has been quietly sheltering on the microwave dish arm again, away from the worst of the rain, but Solo seems to have been more occupied in the trees. Mid-morning we witnessed a fast-moving Beau fly around past the trees, with a nagging and hungry Solo in hot pursuit (although losing ground to dad on each circuit). She’s visibly bigger than Beau in flight and as yet doesn’t have the strength to keep up. No food was seen, although that might’ve already been sitting back on the peregrine’s feeding branch.
