Close up views of the fledglings around the nest site.

Yesterday after the eyasses fledged we had some great views of them around the peregrine watch. The falcon flew in yesterday with a starling and fed the eyasses in the oak tree above the plucking post. They were making a real noise, so I don’t think they had been fed for a while.

It was all action yesterday. The tiercel flew after a buzzard and chased it for about a minute in the sky above the nesting site. He was alarm calling and really flying after the buzzard.

Yesterday evening we had some amazing views of a fledgling on a branch of a pine tree near the peregrine watch. It sat there for about 2 hours and didn’t seem too bothered by us watching it. A woodpigeon landed on the branch near the fledgling and it started alarm calling and staring at the woodpigeon. It must be strange for a bird that has been stuck on a cliff ledge for six weeks.
