November action

Wendy Bartter has recently captured a number of video clips of the female falcon on the nest platform.
This first one shows her almost losing her balance on the edge:


And here's a second showing her 'blowin' in the wind'.....:



And this one shows some scraping/display behaviour which does sometimes occur at this time of the year:


There are more videos available...for the YT links please see Wendy's 'comment' to the previous post on this blog. As always a huge 'thank you' to Wendy for capturing these clips for us!

Very fortunate to have so many visits from Mrs DP to keep us ticking over 'til Spring nesting ... here's another from yesterday showing how expertly she prepares her foodhttps://youtu.be/EQligZXnLnU

Well done again Wendy.
This morning saw an interesting scenario.
While Mrs finished off that bit of Prey from yesterday, another was watching her, standing back on the Cams on the egglaying scrape,they then had a little chin wag, before he/it flew off.Pics as usual posted, note the clocks are an hour out of sync.

Thanks for all the updates of Mrs P, nice to see her on the scrape. When I occasionally log in she's never around. Has Mr P been spotted at all either on video or from someone on ground?

Wendy Bartter said...

Hi Heather, not seen anything of Mr DP myself but have two more vids of the Mrs who has been on scrape quite often today

Mrs can be observed often scanning immediate area around tray, and eyes following someone, who perches just above the end scrape out of cam shot.
