At the beginning of what some meteorologists are already saying will be the wettest local Orange December on record the peregrines have taken shelter. Storms and local flood warnings are current for all over central and southern New South Wales districts (we’re in the central bit!), which means very little food available for our predators today. They will have to pick and choose during any breaks from the incessant rain.
Swift has taken to her familiar perch against the tower on the microwave dish arm in the lee of the pouring rain but no sight nor sound from either Solo and Beau who will know doubt be hunkering down somewhere in the leaky trees below.
As they say in sports circles, “rain has delayed play” …. (I hope someone remembered to bring in the doormat for the eyrie …)
