The eyrie may have been quiet for a month or two now but Cilla’s still working her way through the surveillance footage in attempts to identify badly reconstituted peregrine meals, and possible intruders.The down time is giving everyone a breather but, hopefully, those 3 youngsters have learnt enough hunting skills that they can go on their way, confident of feeding in their own territories.
Today one of our long time supporters picked up a possible issue with Diamond’s left wing. She appears to be favouring it, and at this stage we can’t tell if she’s injured or broken it but I doubt she’d be able to fly with a broken wing, so we’re hoping for the best. Thanks Kathy, well spotted, and thanks for letting us know!!
The colder weather has finally begun to take effect in Orange, after what’s been a severe and record-breaking summer of high temperatures around New South Wales, but this cooler change will be suiting the peregrines (and their flying food supply larder).
