Some cold wind

Visiting the cathedral early yesterday morning, the bitingly cold NW wind had forced the peregrine pair to huddle against the stonework on the top ledge on the South side of the tower, as far out of the weather as they could get. Meanwhile, blown down by the wind, an old woodcock carcase and the leg of a little grebe were found below.
The previous day they had been nest scraping again soon after the series of tower tours during a cathedral open day had finished. These tours have no significant effect on our resolute birds.
Whether we get an egg before Easter remains to be begins to look like we might have to wait until the week after....but only the falcons know!
Meanwhile, enjoy the nest scraping and courtship displays seen on the video clips included in earlier posts!
