As the 3 eyases head towards their 19th & 17th days respectively they’re spending much more time shuffling around the eyrie, inspecting the odd loose feather and visiting each other, and of course there’s always lots of time for sleeping after big feeds. Swift seems to be content in keeping a vigil on the ledge, and not long ago Beau treated us to another of his high-flying displays above campus, gaining height in the warm day’s thermals. With a little cloud cover today it’s bringing out the true peregrine (sp macropus) colours in camera shots and video clips.
Two video clips here of Swift and two of the three eyases shuffling and busying themselves – first clip, second clip …
beautiful the first video, Swift is extremely tender and proud of its eyas
