Xavier goes awol

I was dreading this post as Xavier went missing for nearly three days, a very unusual, if not unheard of, behaviour.  I was really getting quite worried, not helped by quite heavy rain today.

However, all is well, and he bounced back into the body early this morning for a quick dance with Diamond, who seemed quite pleased to see him.   And his been on the ledge for a while this afternoon, too.

These shots were taken prior to has absence…perhaps he was banished for bad behaviour ie not giving up his prey.  Diamond was not impressed when left with empty claw!

  1. He’s still around, but less attentive than he has been; he was away again for over 24 hours last week and the courtship behaviour seems very curt. We saw him on Friday in a large yellow box just above where we were planting trees, but he was too quick for a photo.
    Diamond’s crop is often full when she settles in for the night, so clearly feeding well.
