We have been having some lovely misty dawns this autumn, and Xavier (I assume) has been drawing Diamond out in the early morning for a ‘chase’.
Sadly, the video hasn’t uploaded properly. shame….their wing flaps are synchronised beautifully, although at some distance. Might try again with different length or format.
Here she is returning a few minutes later after the chase.
VIDEO 20170510 Diamond’s dawn arrival
I’ve noticed that Diamond often arrives with a full crop in the late afternoon just after seeing Xavier with bloody claws, but nothing in crop, the implication being that he is feeding her, but away from the box. Just speculation, however.
Those are some gorgeous photos. Thanks for posting, Cilla.
I’ve tried again with the video and it worked this time; who knows why?? See ‘dawn revisited’.
