This morning, early on, we caught some photos of a very exhausted Beau when he brought his breakfast up on to the ledge. Using the ledge to return to base with food has begun to happen more often, Swift as much as Beau. Good to see they’re using the tower as a base (great for the Project!). Shortly afterward Beau flew out into the trees but a minute or two later returned to drag breakfast away again. Knowing our Beau he just plain forgot to take it with him the first time!
But for some reason this morning’s efforts appear to have been hard work as Beau arrived (captured in demo video) with prey but utterly exhausted and panting. The temperature wasn’t overly warm, at about 24degC (75degF), but the guess is this time he was taken for quite a chase. In the end he won out, no doubt using the peregrine’s renowned superior maneuverability! At this stage there wasn’t enough left to identify prey type.
