Peregrine 2012 Season - Part 1

The season started well with the Peregrine pair returning to the nest site area in early March. They were using the Pylon as a roost and flying over to the cliff face nesting place. This all fits in well with previous years.







I was looking forward to an interesting season but, a few days later, I only saw the male. For two weeks I returned to the site but only saw the male on each occasion. Finally, he seemed to have departed too and I thought I would have to accept that this year would be a total failure. Whatever happened to the female? We shall never know.

Following a tip-off, I found that the story had not ended. More about this in a later post.

Thanks Ed.

The tactic that these birds employ is to fly rapidly along the cliff face to flush out pigeons perching there. The last shot is during a rapid dive down.

Peter, I really hope this thread gets large and larger with every passing day! I loved your last years Peregrine shots! Could it be that the female was incubating flat out, so that she escaped your vision?! But, I am dreaming I guess - as not to think of all the other possible fates of her

Good evening and sorry for the delay in replying. I do not get very much time on here at the moment. I did find time to see them again this week and images will be posted shortly. They have now lost the down but more later.....
