Considering the amount of rain we’re getting (and it’s much worse elsewhere in New South Wales) the peregrines have got off lightly and feeding patterns appear to be normal with a couple of meals each day. We can tell when food has arrived, based on Solo’s vocalisations! This morning Beau arrived back with food, and prior to Solo stealing it all she treated us to a few open soaring loops around the tower, while Swift quietly avoided the fuss up on the ledge, and Beau then took off in a north-westerly direction again where he often heads on departure. With GPS units attached we’d know where he goes but north-west of here, a few kilometres away, there are some pretty big pine forests, and lots of farm land – no doubt good pickings.
All is quiet again …. weather and wet long grass permitting we’ll got for a walk through the trees this afternoon for some bird spotting ….
