Tom stood his ground for once but was so surprised he had to check why Azina’d left 🤣 He came back to incubate very soon after.
It’s been a typical day in the life of a young Peregrine. Long periods of inactivity with pancaking or sitting watching the world go by and preening. Bursts of mad activity with running around, jumping and flapping. P6T’s flapping is getting stronger and longer.
He was fed twice, pigeon both times.
“Eh! Wait! You were meant to beg for a bit longer!” 😉
Tom’s getting bolder! He nipped at Azina’s wing to make her move today…
Light entertainment with an image in image clip. A couple of pigeons spent a few minutes on the ledge in front of the nest box and I thought it would be nice to add Azina in the nest box and her reaction to it. What do you think? 😉
Tom and Azina mating on the ledge this morning. A different view, from the fixed camera. Azina instigated that one, but it took Tom some time to get the message.
Happy 1 week birthday to the middle chick!
The oldest chick is showing pin feathers on its wings 🙂
Another good day for the chicks with plenty of food, plenty of sleep and brooding from Mum and Dad.
Tom paid a brief visit at 2 am! And then a longer one at 5.08 where he had another one of those long chats with Azina. These two are just so sweet!
There have been seven feeds today, at 5.27am, 7.20am (Tom), 10.51am, 1.09pm, 4.30pm, 6.12pm and 7.32pm (short, chicks were still full).
Tom got to feed the chicks this morning.
