Getting in the mood....February 2018

Wendy Bartter captured the video below a couple of days ago (on 8th February) and it shows both the female doing a little nest scraping and later on, an e-chupping session between the pair with the male flying off perhaps as a result of the intimidating pose and feet dancing display the female puts on. So things are beginning to hot up!

Hi Lesley: no it won't...and of course most peregrines don't get their nests cleaned out ever!
We do plan to clean the Derby platform and re-set the web cams in the next few weeks once the weather warms up - today with its wind and snow showers really isn't abseiling weather!
